Small but strong with history. The locals also pays high respect to this temple and is celebrated frequently especially for the Chingay procession.

One of JB's oldest temple erected by early Chinese settlers from Ngee Heng Co about 130 years ago in this historic city. A popular place for worshipers around JB city and its suburbs. Decorated with traditional lanterns and Ming architecture, the temple houses 5 Chinese deities revered by various southern Chinese clans

As Johorean, proud to say that never missed any Chingay Parade celebration, which is unique only in Johor, every single year. This temple is the starting point for the beginning of the celebration, and also the finish point at the end of celebration. Ask any Johorean, all will agree this temple have a great sentimental value for them.
