On my visit, many red lanterns is hung on the opened porch section before the main entrance. Here, you will also find an altar dedicated to Tian Gong /天公, like in most temple.

It has a Sky well / Tian Jing / 天井 will four white pillars inscribe with chinese poetic rhyme inside the temple. The wall next to the main altar is fill with pieces of mosaic with the image of Lord Guan. There is a total of 260 piece of these mosaic on each side of the wall. On some of the mosaic, i found names belonging to devotees, whom, i presumed, had donated generously to this temple.

    Hello.. I am interested to visit one of the Guan Di Temple in Cameron Highlands. Is this the one that has bells and drums for us make our prayers with? Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

      Hi Su Yee, I would not be sure if this is the Guan Di temple that allows its devotees to use the bells and drums for making prayers. Commonly, when a donation is made in a temple, the caretaker would hit on the drums and rings its bells as blessing. Sometimes they even chant rhyme of blessing for the donators.
