The temple has architectural designs of traditional Guang Dong style. There are 19 buildings on the property, each displaying a different kind of exhibition, such as antiques, wood carvings, stone carvings, sculptures, calligraphy, paintings, and so on. The walls and roofs of the temple are beautifully carved and decorated with pictures and paintings of gods, dragons, people, flowers, and sceneries.
The Chen Clan Ancestral Temple was definitely built with complete care and detail and is the largest, best-preserved, and best-decorated ancient architecture existing in the Guang Dong Province.
