Hock Teik Cheng Sin Temple - 2

In the 1860s, apparently it had some secret society related activity and featured various coloured flags. There is a reportedly a secret passage at the side of the Tua Pek Kong temple to the Leong San Tong Khoo Kongsi. It was (and still is) a favourite of merchants and traders. The traders’ society took ownership of this temple in 1890.

I love the intrigue involved, Ayush...secret societies, secret tunnels...
You didn't find the secret passage? Is the bowl in the center for offerings?
Un endroit très attrayant pour les touristes.

The traders must have secret meetings where they trade their trade secrets.
man oh man, the people that decorate temples must have busy minds lol great shot!
I wonder if anyone knows where the secret passage is?
Interesting if the secret tunnel was found. The lady on the left doesn't seem to be very suitably dressed for such a holy place.
What intrigue! Good to know these things.
Nice pov, Ayush... Did those secret societies include nijas? tongue

I bet if those walls (tunnels) could talk...there'd be quite the history shared.
Interesting tale related to the Temple.
