Xian Si Shi Ye Gong-Semenyih / 仙四師爺宮-士毛月.

Location:- Semenyih, Selangor / 士毛月, 雪蘭莪.
Also known as:- Semenyih See Ya Kung

This temple with a beautiful Pai Lou / 牌樓 facing the main road would be hard to miss. It is said that this is the 6th Xian Si Shi Ye temple in peninsular Malaysia.

On arrival, one would be greeted by the nice facade the temple has. It has beautiful figurine of the eight immortals and dragons on its roof along with it’s huge signage above its entrance. Banners used for streets parade’s are also displayed next to its entrance.

Establish in 1880, it was a small temple based on a framed black and white photo hanging on the main hall. The inscription on this photo states that it was taken in 1964. I believed, they rebuild another temple as there is a photo of ground breaking taken in 1963. Now it has a stage builded in front and a Chinese restaurant operating next to this place. There is also a Na To Gong / 嗱督公 shrine located to the side of the building with a river not far away.

The main prayer hall consist of a few prayers altar. Huge long Needle, Flags and swords are displayed on the side wall. Much of these apparatus are used by mediums during procession. Just like many other Shi Ye temples, it too has a photo of the late kapitan Yap Ah Loy / 甲必丹葉亞來 framed on its wall since it was told that he was one of the key founders.

There is two huge statue worship on it’s center altar. On the left is Si Shi Ye / 四師爺 while the other on it’s right is known as Xian Shi Ye / 仙師爺. They are the patron deities of this temple and are more commonly known as Xian Si Shi Ye / 仙四師爺.

Others deities worship in this temple are, Tai Sui / 太歲, Lord Guan Di / 關帝, Da Bo Ye / Tua Ya Pek / 大伯爷, Bai Hu / White Tiger / 白虎, Wen Chang Xian Shi / 文昌仙師 and what seems to me as Tu Di Gong / 土地公 along with Tu Di Po / 土地婆. An altar devoted to the Goddess Guan Yin / Guan Yin Pu Sa / 觀音菩薩 is also found in this hall.

A hall by the side is used by its committee’s for its administrative purposes. There is many framed photos of its grand celebration / festival and streets parades from the past.
