WPC – Look Up At The Ceiling and Roof


 

The Cheng Hoon Teng temple, -the oldest functioning temple in Malaysia-, is a Chinese temple which is practicing the Three Doctrinal Systems of Taoism, Confucianism, and Buddhism. Located at Jalan Tokong, just a stone’s throw from the famous Kp. Kling mosque and an old Hindu temple, this richly decorated temple made the neighborhood named as Harmony Street in Malacca, a UNESCO World Heritage City in Malaysia.

Furthermore, this religious building got an award from UNESCO for outstanding architectural restoration. It’s not surprising because this temple has a lot of intricate beauties.

People usually overlook the art on the top part of the temple, but I gave myself chances to look up and enjoy the art of the red lanterns hanging on the ceiling, and also the images of warriors, dragons, animals and other mythical creatures on the temple’s roof.

  1. Waduh ornamentasi atapnya raya banget. Seandainya satu dunia bisa dituangkan di ujung-ujung atap, mungkin sudah dilakukan ya Mbak. Dan jika atapnya saja sudah seraya ini, dalamnya pasti lebih menakjubkan, betulkah? Memang budaya Tiongkok itu sangat kaya dengan warna-warna yang berani. Kadang-kadang saya bertanya mengapa, apakah perjalanan bangsa itu terlalu panjang sampai sudah makan semua asam garam, hehe.

    • Sebenarnya tak banyak yang menikmati atapnya Gara, krn letaknya diatas jadi kebanyakan orang tidak memperhatikan. Tapi kalau kita lihat dari batas gerbangnya, baru bisa terlihat. Apalagi kalau di zoom… asik banget ngliatnya Gara…
      Kekuatannya memang diatap, di dalamnya juga penuh ornamen tp sy lebih suka apa yang ada di atap.
