Tua Pek Kong Temple in Kuching

Yesterday post a bit heavy for eyes so today wana repay back with something light...lol

The temple that i visit every 1st and 15th of chinese calendar...Nowadaes more mom readers to my blog so must kuai kuai and kenot simply post...LOL

I just knew that this temple that i visit twice a month were so old ledi...its built in 1856...wow...150 years and its really a history...when in my young age i read in newspaper that a bomb was found at the side of the temple and the story were being told that Japanese plan to bomb the temple but suprisingly it drop beside the temple and never explode till they found it... ;)

sorry for the blur picture...wana have a clear picture go here...last Thursdays 15th in chinese calendar i went there for praying and not forgotten i pray for her recovery...my readers as i know there from different races so when you all went to Church and Masjid and did ya all pray for her also? ;)













the entrance to the temple and the grannny which i always gave my donation to...i never gave the donation to the temple as so many people donate but still a lil bit bad the condition of the temple...if raining heavily there will be leaking on the roof...where did the money go???













the place to burn our offering to god...













the front view of the temple...













inner view of the temple as its still early so not much people around and by the time nearly 9pm it was getting crowded...i cry all the way when in the temple coz of the smoke from jossticks... ;)













a closer view at the mighty Tua Pek Kong...













the tiger which i always stuck money in its mouth and ask for blessing...i heard its tooth are from real tiger ...the tiger just located under the Tua Pek Kong statue...













all offering you need can be bought in the temple...













the right wing of the temple...the arrow shown the candle those offerers lid in the temple but being carried out as too much of it...later this candle wont be finish burning as those workers in the temple will lid off the fire and melt it for reprocess and resell...i'm very sad of what they did as supposedly a temple is a place for offering but instead of it,they using it for business purposed...my friend ever special ordered a huge candle from Indonesia and lid it on last year CNY but it were being lid off the next day and we ask the worker as my friends gave him rm20 look after the fire then he told us finish burn already...i told the worker couldn't be and then he admitted not him took away the candle...one of my friend saw the candle was kept in the store when he send some goods to the temple...













the left wing of the temple...how short she wore to the temple but at least not those chao ah lian wore mini skirts to temple as i seen some of them went there more to showing themself than offering...my friends used to say that nowadaes temple more seem like pubs...LOL













the back of the temple...btw i'm not taking your picture lar but anyhow now you fehmes ledi... lol













This temple are one of the famous and most visitors as most of what we ask from god will be fulfill... ;)
