Nine From Hong San Si Temple in Klang

Earlier this week, I visited this lovely Nine Emperor Gods temple in Klang. It’s been around for 60 years and, by the looks of it, it’s got a long life ahead of it. With strong Buddhist influences, this temple is all about the sacred smoke, even taking a palanquin on procession that holds the smoking urn. I also loved the responsibilities that this temple entrusts to the children; and they make their own pau for praying right in the temple! It exudes enthusiasm and camaraderie. It’s neat and tidy, beautifully finished and full of welcoming friends. Here are a few shots from my evening there. Thanks to LG Ong, the temple’s head medium, who took a lot of time to introduce us to the many endearing aspects of this temple.
