Ping Ann Keong-Tanjung Karang / 平安宮-丹绒加弄

Ping Ann Keong-Tanjung Karang / 平安宮-丹绒加弄.

Location:- Jalan Tepi Sungai, Tanjung Karang, Selangor / 丹绒加弄, 雪蘭莪州.

Pinyin:- Ping An Gong, aka Persatuan Penganut Dewa Ping Ann Keong.

We were travelling along Federal Route 5 till when one of us had a glimpse of this temple with a golden horse in between a row of shophouses. And since there were much time before dinner, we decided to turnaround looking for the road in. We arrived to this grand temple dedicated to local territorial deity, Na To Kong / 嗱督公. It has a large golden horse at its front yard along with statues of a Chinese child pushing crates of gold on both side. These two child statue is theme as the auspicious Tong Zi Song Bao / 童子送宝. But if you were to look closely, there are quite a number of them around. Very unique. This temple is beautifully build and some how…it seem to be on an ideal location too.

Following the walkway to the interior, one could not help noticing the beautiful mural and wood carving along the way in. There is also small courtyard before the main prayer hall.

On the interior, a huge altar with three section is placed on the center of this prayer hall. Due to regular incense offering, the whole altar is smoke stained and it made it look really good.

The center section is devoted to the worshipped of its main patron deity, Na To Kong / 嗱督公. The section to the right is dedicated to Da Bo Gong / 大伯公 along with his Wen Guan / 文官 and Wu Guan / 武官 while the left section is devoted to the worshipped of Guan Yin Pu Sa / 觀音菩薩 along with Jin Tong Yu Nu / 金童玉女. There is also a Tu Di Gong / 土地公 inshrined below the centre section of the altar.

Lian Hua An-Titi / 連花庵-知知港

Lian Hua An-Titi / 連花庵-知知港

aka Li Wang Lian Hua An / 梨旺連花庵 / Tokong Lian Fah Am – The oldest temple in Titi / 知知港.

Location :- Titi, Jelebu, Negeri Sembilan / Location:- 知知港, 日叻务, 森美兰州.

Travelling from Hulu Langat via Selangor State Route B32, one would definitely have to keep their eyes wide open as there are many blind corner along with wildlife crossings. It was a blessing that there weren’t much other vehicle. So we had a slow drive through. Beknown, there is no phone reception on certain part of this route.

This road connect to the Negeri Semblian State Route N32, (Jalan Semenyih-Kuala Klawang) and after the many turns, we were already looking for a place to stretch our backs, thats when we came upon a signage by the mainroad leading to this temple.

Located on a slightly elevated ground, it does has a peaceful and calm surrounding with a view towards the foothills of the Titiwangsa Mountains. At the front-yard, there is a small pond with lotus flowering on my visit. To me, thats an auspicious sign.

On the inside, there are many boards with name of contributor and photos of celebration done yesteryears hanging by the wall. There is also many colourful flower offered on the offering altar. According to the information board inside, this is known as the oldest surviving temple in Titi area dated back to 1876. There is also a photo of the old temple before its rebuilding in 1982.

Titi was discovered in the early 19th century and the town bloom due to its tin mining and rubber plantation businesses. Many chinese where brought in to work as labourers and founded smaller village nearby. Unfortunately during the Japanese occupation, many villagers were massacre. This dark event is known as the Titi Massacre. To read more about the massacre, visit here and here

It was during the Japanese occupation, the villagers of Sungai Muntoh / 雙溪文都新村 invited and placed the goddess statue in the village Lian Hua An branch temple, so that local residents could find spiritual sustenance.

The main altar is dedicated to the worshipped of its main patron deity Nan Hai Guan Yin / 南海觀音. Other deities worshipped on this altar included Jin Tong Yu Nu / 金童玉女, Xuan Tan Yuan Shuai / 玄壇元帥 aka Marshall Zhao Gong Ming / 趙公明, Wei Tuo Pu Sa / 韋馱菩萨, Wen Shu Pu Sa / 文殊菩薩 and a tablet dedicated to Shi Ma Jiang Jun / 石馬將軍.

It Na To Gong / 嗱督公, shrine is situated at the front yard while another shrine by the side of this temple is dedicated to You Yuen Gong / 有願公.

A building further in, I believe, is used for its festival purposes. And not to miss out, a durian tree (fruiting while we’re there) in between both buildings. When it ripe’s, the comittees would definitely enjoy.

No further information can be obtain here as there were nobody around during our visit.
