Fu De Ci-Teluk Kumbar / 福德祠-公芭.

Location :- Teluk Kumbar, Penang / 公芭, 檳城.

Could also be known as Ju Bao Tang / 聚寶堂.

After a visit from the previous temple, we continue our journey to my job site located further south of this island. On arrival, we came upon this temple located at a corner with a natural stream flowing on the opposite. A few local were busy washing their motorcycle and cars with the water from the flowing stream. There wasn’t much information that I could obtain as there wasn’t anybody around. Located slightly elevated off the road, this Da Bo Gong / 大伯公 temple is a beautiful relaxing place to stop by. It also has a shrine dedicated to the worship of its local deity Na To Gong / 嗱督公 by the side.

Its prayer hall has three wooden plaque on its main altar. Chinese couplets / Dui Lian / 對聯 (pairs of auspicious poetic phrase) are carved on the side plaque while the center plaque is carved with the name of it main patron deity Fu De Zheng Shen / 福德正神 aka Da Bo Gong / 大伯公. This deity is usually depicted as an old man with long white beards holding a wooden staff and a gold ingot. Another signage in this prayer hall suggest that it could also be known as Ju Bao Tang / 聚寶堂.
