Shui Yue Gong-Gua Musang / 水月宮-话望生

Shui Yue Gong-Gua Musang / 水月宮-话望生.

Location:- Kampung Pulai, Gua Musang, Kelantan / 布赖, 话望生, 吉兰丹.

I’ve heard much about this place which has very rich history about the early hakka chineses who’ve travel from China to Kelantan in search of gold. These early chinese gold miners are said to have traveled a long distant from the river mouth of the Kelantan River to their current location now along Sungai Galas. After settling down in Pulai, the community builded this Chinese temple to house the deities they brought along and also to house the deities that miners couldn’t carry back to china. The name Shui Yue Gong is translated to English as Water Moon Palace/temple.

On Road, this place is roughly about 10-12km away from Gua Musang. There were many signage from the main road to this place. The old fast flowing river of Sungai Galas in front of this temple is no more, now it’s just a huge pond. Developments over the years up river has altered much of it’s original landscapes.

This temple has much old relics that was brought along by these early settlers. The oldest is an incense pot in this temple, that is said to have been made during the era of Xuande (1426-1435) of the Ming Dynasty and the portrait of the Goddess Guan Yin on the main altar which i was told to be about 500 years old.

There is three altar in the main hall. The center altar is devoted to Goddess Guan Yin / Guan Yin Pu Sa / 觀音菩薩.

The altar the left is devoted to Goddess Mazu / 媽祖 (also known as Goddess Tian Hou / 天后娘娘 and the locals here calls her Ma Niang / 媽娘 ). There is three Ma Niang and they are known as Da Ma Niang/ 大媽娘, Er Ma Niang / 二媽娘 and San Ma Niang / 三媽娘 along with Xian Ren Shu Po Tai / 仙人叔婆太 whom is the patron deities of animals.

The altar on the Right is devoted to Lord Guan Di / 關帝 along with Tan Gong Ye / 譚公爺, Da Bo Gong / 大伯公 and Cai Shen Ye / 財神爺.

The other branch of Shui Yue Gong is located in Kampung Pulai Baru, Terengganu. View my post on that temple here
