Lao Zi Temple is a Taoist temple dedicated to Lao Zi, the Supreme Patriarch of Taoism, located along Kuantan-Sungai Lembing road. Its 823 meters long Golden Dragon Structure is the main attraction with it being listed in Malaysia Book of Records as the country's longest dragon statue.
Inside the dragon walls, a 5000-word scripture, Book of Tao & its Virtues, is written. At the exit, you'll come across a ball called Dragon's Pearl. It is believed that touching the ball brings good luck.
The temple compound features many statues of Chinese zodiac creatures, deities and a 7-meter tall statue of Laozi himself. To reach Lao Zi Temple, you'll have to walk inside the dragon structure by entering through its tail and then emerging out of its mouth.
