The Old Taoist Temple of Tanjung Bungah, Penang   2 comments


This is an old Taoist Temple which I visited with my parents many times in my younger days. Though I am not educated in the Mandarin medium in school, I followed my parents’ religion of a mix of Taoism and Buddhism. This Temple is built for the “Xian Liew” community which are the Chinese staying near the Putian area of Fujian Province of China. My maternal grandfather, Teh Ban Bee was a “Xian Liew” lang and their professions are usually that of operating of coffee shops or bicycle shops in the then Malaya.
