Location: Kuala Rompin, Rompin, Pahang / 瓜拉雲冰, 雲冰, 彭亨.

Registered as KUIL CINA TUA PEI KONG in 1985.

It’s been many years that i’ve spoken about visiting this part of malaysia. This time around, i was lucky that i was invited by friend’s to join along for this road trip. As there was no direct access via the highway, almost the whole journey were done through federal route’s between palm tree estates. We arrived at Kuala Rompin in the evening and saw this huge beautiful Pai Lou / 牌樓 leading to a temple while heading to the nearby resort. This temple is located next to a chinese primary school along the main road. Since it was already late, I’ve decided to make a return trip the next day.

Upon arrival the following day, we were greeted by the temple caretaker whom had spend time to explain much of its history and surrounding. According to him, this is the only chinese temple located in this area.

Based on what we’ve gathered, this place of worship had actually started in a wooden house till some devotees donated this land to the temple. With funds raised by generous donors, they were able to build a larger temple here. The caretaker couldn’t be sure of the exact date but it was said that all this were during the 1970’s. The only clue provided were a donor’s recognition board for a stage that is dated 1978. It was in 1984 that this temple did its major refurbishment.

Much of the interior and exterior wall were painted with beautiful drawings of chinese deities Neatly kept, it is enshrined with three altars.

The main altar on the centre is devoted to the worshipped of its main patron deity, Da Bo Gong / 大伯公. According to the caretaker, it is commonly known here as a Teochew Da Bo Gong. Beside him, the god of war and fortune, Guan Sheng Da Di / 關聖大帝 and Guo Sheng Ye / 郭聖爺 is also enshrined here. Guo Sheng Ye / 郭聖爺 is more commonly known as Guang Ze Zun Wang / 廣澤尊王.

An altar to the left is dedicated to the Goddess Guan Yin Pu Sa / 觀音菩薩 while the altar to the right is dedicated to Fa Zhu Gong /法主公. A huge rostrum of a sawfish is displayed here on this altar with red chinese characters written on it. Kindly note that this rostrum has been around since the 1970’s and it is a common relic displayed in temple’s visited by fishermen. It is illegal to purchase one today as the sawfish is now considered an endangered species.

Other deities enshrined in this temple includes Na Zha San Tai Zi / 哪吒三太孑, Bai Hu / 白虎 and Di Zhu Gong / 地主公. On the exterior, a shrine dedicated to it local area deity, Na To Gong / 嗱督公 is build by side of the main premise.
