Mao Shan Fa Tan-Ulu Yam / 茅山法壇-烏汝音

Mao Shan Fa Tan-Ulu Yam / 茅山法壇-烏汝音.

Location: Ulu Yam Baharu, Selangor / 烏汝音, 雪蘭莪.

Continuing our Ulu Yam road trip, it was about dinner time. I saw this temple along my route and decided to do one more for the day, Upon arrival, devotees were busy praying and doing offering while i waited for a while before the master of the temple has some free time for me. The master of this temple was friendly and was kind enough to explain bits about the history on how it all began, the temple, the mysterious sect and on how he inherited his knowledge. This temple was establish in 1978 and is named as Mao Shan Fa Tan of the Mao Shan Liu Min teaching sect. It is the only Mao Shan Liu Min Jiao / 茅山流民教 temple in this Ulu Yam area.

On the interior, a beautiful wooden medium’s chair with dragon’s crafter on it were place on top of its pakua mural floor. At the centre of the temple’s main hall, a big statue which is known as Mao Shan Fa Zhu / 茅山法主 is placed and it’s the temples main patron deity. On a altar at its back, there is a unique plaque with information about the sect been displayed along with deities of Goddess Guan Yin / Guan Yin Pu Sa / 觀音菩薩 and Lord Guan Di / 關帝. Many yellow amulet’s are seen paste on the side of its altars and i was told that each of these amulet’s has its special purposes. Other smaller altar in this temple is dedicated to Da Bo Ye / Tua Ya Pek / 大伯爷 and there is one for the offering to Bai Hu /白虎. Monochrome photo’s of its street parade done in the past can be seen on the side wall by the information board.
