I first visited this place a few months back and it was still in their last stages of construction. At that time, I had already imagine that this temple would be very elegant upon its completion.

Well, on this new visit, the temple has already been completed. As expected, exquisite . It had already been officially open to public on January 23rd 2013 / 十二月十二日壬辰年.

It’s compound, which is quite big, has two shrine which is builded devoted to the 5 General / 五爺 and it’s local deity, Na To Gong / 嗱督公. A pagoda shaped incense furnace is also builded on its front side.

The facade has huge pillars along with murals of chinese mythological creature and deities at it’s side. A large set of doors with the image of it’s “Men Shen / 門神” painted on it leads to the main prayer hall. I guess the height of the door is about 10-12 feet as the door handle is already 5-6 feet high. According to a devotee, most of the murals and ornaments are brought in from China.

Wood carvings on its altar were beautifully carve by the artisan from china. The signage above the altar is placed below a beautiful crafted golden dragon making the altar very elegant. It’s main altar consist of three top section. On the left is a section devoted to Tian Hou Niang Niang / 天后娘娘 also commonly known as Mazu / 媽祖 along with her devoted servant Qian Li Yan / 千里眼 and Shun Feng Er / 順風耳. On the center altar, Jin Wang Ye / 金王爺, Ling An Zun Wang / 靈安尊王, it main patron deity Jin Shun Da Ren / 金順大人 and Nian Wang Ye / 輦王爺. There are other deities placed on this section of the altar. And the last section is devoted to Da Bo Gong / 大伯公.

As this placed is still new, I believe on my next return trip, more ornaments will be added.
There are very little information about it main patron deity Jin Shun Da Ren / 金順大人. Do leave a comment if you have move infomation about this god or this temple. I would really appreciate it.

    Don’t have any info on the deity but what’s with the flying/floating chair?

      The chair isn’t flying (really wish it was…). It’s just hanging by the wall. This bamboo knitted chair is actually a Fu Ji / 扶箕. There is a calligraphy brush tie to the side of the chair and it is used for planchette writing (auto writing).
