The temple is dedicated to Kuan Yin,the goddess of mercy.The first foundation was laid in 1728 by Chinese settlers and completed in 1800.
During the 1800s, it was among the most magnificent Chinese structures in northern Malaya, boasting of both Cantonese and Hokkien elements in its construction."---source:
Anyhow,we had a quick look inside the temple since entrance is free.It was a rather small looking Temple with the main prayer hall greeting you upon entry.I went deeper inside where a smaller prayer section is situated.
I think I should go back and try to appreciate it more.A structure this old deserves better recognition :)
Opens: 6:00am to 8:00pm daily.
ENTRANCE FEE--- free
