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.
