Guan Di Tan-Jerteh / 關帝壇-日底

Guan Di Tan-Jerteh / 關帝壇-日底.

Location:- Jerteh, Besut, Terengganu / 日底, 勿述, 登嘉樓州.

Visiting a friend who reside in setiu, Terengganu brought about a conversation piece relating to a temple that was mention to him by the locals nearby.

And since we were already around the area, we decided to find this temple which we only know its location through hearsay. Fortunately enough, we were able to locate this temple without making too much wrong turns since it is located further inland from the costal area. It was quite a hot day when we arrived and I guess everybody was out for lunch. Therefore, I’ve no information about its formation or history.

Situated near some plantation, this place should be very cooling from dusk till dawn. There is high probability that this structure is newly build as it looks like it is under going some finishing touches.

Judging from the condition of the statues, i believe that the deities has been worship for a while and certain of its design has already been obsolete. This also suggest to me that the devotee or committees of this temple has been practicing their worship needs elsewhere or maybe, this premise is a new structure over its old premise.

This temple is devoted to the worship of its main patron deity Guan Sheng Da Di / 關聖大帝. Commonly known as the red face Chinese god of war, it is a deity whom is known to protects one from any ghostly disturbance and bad lucks. There is three altar in its main prayer hall. Beside it main patron deity, there are other deities worshipped on its main altars. This includes Na Zha San Tai Zi / 哪吒三太孑, Hua Guang Da Di / 華光大帝, Fa Zhu Gong /法主公, Zhu Sheng Niang Niang / 注生娘娘, Tie Guai Li / Iron-Crutch Li / 鐵拐李, Qi Tian Da Sheng / 齊天大聖, etc…

Another altar below it is devoted to the worship of it local earth deities along with Da Er Bo Ye / Tua Dee Ya Pek / 大二伯爺.

An altar to the left in this prayer hall is devoted to the worship of Fu De Zheng Shen / 福德正神 also commonly known as Da Bo Gong / 大伯公 while the altar on the right is devoted to Goddess Guan Yin / Guan Yin Pu Sa / 觀音菩薩.

A shrine is build on its front side for the worship of the local area deity, Na To Gong / 嗱督公. On the other side, a pagoda looking incense furnace is also build.
Beautiful carved murals are attach to its background on all it altars. Painted in gold, each has its unique carved. A mural of a dragon is attach on the main altar while a Lotus mural is attach to the altar devoted to Goddess Guan Yin / Guan Yin Pu Sa / 觀音菩薩.
