Guan Di Miao-Gua Musang / 關帝廟-话望生

Guan Di Miao-Gua Musang / 關帝廟-话望生.

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

I was told of this Guan Di temple by some locals and decided to go looking for it. It’s was the beautiful Pai Lou / 牌樓 on the main road that made my search easier. Turning in from the main road, you’ll have to looks for a small road that is located right after the school. The temple should be on sight when you find this road.

I believe this chinese temple used to have much land space at it’s front many years ago. Now a school is builded on that big land. At current, i think they should still have enough space for festival purposes but of course, if there’s a bigger space…the more better. With the amount of space they used to have, i could imagine the grandness of this temple during their festivals back those days.

The temple was open and everybody seems to be very busy doing there own thing. So I decided not to stop the flow and went along with my photo taking.

On the main altar, the deity lord Guan Di / 關帝 along with Guan Ping Tai Zi / 關平太孑 and Zhou Cang / 周倉 / 周仓 is seen on the center altar with a big statue of Lord Guan / 關帝 sitting right behind them. Next to it should be Cai Shen Ye / 財神爺. A few replica of Lord Guans weapons are also place standing next to this altar.

The altar on the right is devoted to Goddess Guan Yin / Guan Yin Pu Sa / 觀音菩薩. While the altar on the left is devoted to a few very unique Deities of General NOT known to me. I assume they could be deities of the three kingdom era. This altar is called Tai Wei Dian /太尉殿 and the word Tai Wei /太尉 is a title given to a supreme government official in charge of military affairs back in china those days.
