Seng Ong Beow-Jelutong / 城隍廟-日落洞

Seng Ong Beow-Jelutong / 城隍廟-日落洞.

Pinyin, Cheng Huang Miao known as City/Town God temple.

Location :- Sandilands Street, Jelutong, Penang – 日落洞, 檳城.

I was doing some read up about Mr Khoo Thean Teik / 邱天德, a powerful and notorious hokkien leaders of 19th-century Penang. I came to know that he was a philanthropist and also a principal donor to this City God Temple in 1879.

Devotees were seen offering joss stick and candle upon our arrival. A piece of marble with names of people who donated to the rebuilding of the temple is place next to the main door. The interior of the temple is stained by the main years of joss offerings. I would revisit one day in the night to take a photo of its interior on low light condition. I believe the photo would come out good.

The main altar is devoted to Di Zang Wang Pu Sa / 地藏王普薩 , the altar on right is devoted to Seng Wang Yeh / Cheng Huang Ye / 城隍爺 with a huge Da Bo Ye / 大伯爷 standing on it’s side. Cheng Huang is commonly known as the City God.

The altar on the left is devoted to Qi Niang Ma / 七娘媽 and Da Bo Gong / 大伯公 with a tablet for Zhu Sheng Niang Niang / 注生娘娘 behind it. Er Bo Ye / 二伯爷 is seen standing on it’s side. There are two smaller altar of deities that is not known to me.
