Why must we travel so far to visit a temple? What is so interesting there lah? Because it is on the way to Bukit Jugra where we are going to have the Beggar’s Chicken
? Since it is on the way, we shall stop by for half an hour or so? Okay, let’s go and have fun!
How to get there? All you have to do is to follow the “FGS”
signboards when you reach Jenjarom
. The small brown signages will lead you to a big signboard at a traffic light before you turn right to reach the temple!
A picture is worth a thousand words? Let’s take a picture tour of the temple…
The temple compound is big, neat, well organised and clean.
The tour begins at the grand entrance into the temple’s ground.
Walk into a scenic ground of man made creation from this entrance.
A stone island with artificial waterfalls stands in the pond of carps
surrounded by weeping willows.
Beautiful, simply beautiful.
Such a serene sight; so enchanting that one can stand
and admire the carps having a gala time swimming in the water,
occasionaly jumping up to show off or get some attention from its admirers.
Save by the bell?
Hit the bell, hear the sound and make a wish…
Look around and you will find beautiful flowers everywhere!
Water lilies are my favourite!
A stretch of 33 Kuan Yin statues
with 33 different proverbs, all carved in Chinese wordings,
to bless the visitors.
You can also find pine trees here.
Just love the curves and the colours!
So soothing to the eyes, right?
Don’t know where is where?
Just look for the above signage poles!
My favourite picture of the day!
Once you step into any of the shrine or prayer hall,
you will feel peace within and without;
peace of mind, peace of soul and
peace with yourself.
As you leave the temple compound,
you will find the above majestic structure.
This temple took my breath away!
Other places of interest there:
1) Writing Hall
– where you get to write Chinese proverbs.
You do not need to know Chinese to do that!
2) Relic Hall
– the holiest place of this temple.
Wear socks or bring your own socks if you want to visit this hall.
If not, you may need to buy a pair of socks there!
And remember to turn off your handphone before stepping into the hall!
3) Tea House(s)
– to quench your thirst and fill your stomach.
Must try their black soya bean drink!
Hot or cold?
I like mine cold!
