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.

Procession of the Sri Maha Sakthi Muneeswarar Jaibhavani Devasthanam Hindu Temple at the Reclamation Area, Weld Quay, Penang took place this evening of Saturday, 28 Juy, 2012. I was deeply moved and touched by the act of these Hindus as they even paid respect to the Taoist Diety in this Taoist Temple along the Procession’s route. This is mutual respect and religious tolerance in a multi-racial, multi-cultural and multi-religious society in Malaysia, in general and in Penang, in particular.

One of my favourite Temples on my Fujian Tour 2011   Leave a comment

This Taoist Temple is a small one compared to the bigger Temples I had seen in ShanTou. All the Taoist Dieties are female and it is a very old Temple. As seen from the photographs, it has real character and the architecture and stone carvings are really ancient and not replicas of sort. The Toaist Temple next to this Mazu Temple is also my favourite.
