"Khoo Khongsi" Leong San Tong Khoo Kongsi (Khoo Clan) Temple Tip by Ines28

  Khoo Khongsi
by Ines28

This is a Chinese meeting house/temple. The Khoo clan, who immigrated from Hokkien province in China, acquired this spot in 1851 and set to work building row houses, administrative buildings, and a clan temple around a large square. The temple here now was actually built in 1906 after a fire destroyed its predecessor. It was believed the original was too ornate, provoking the wrath of the gods.

Address: 18 lebuh cannon, 10200 penang.
Directions: nestled amongst the little streets in town.. the entrance is just off lebuh cannon.. near the malay mosque..
