Yap Kongsi (Yap Clan) Temple, Penang: 7 reviews and 7 photos


There are two separate buildings of different architecture side by side - the Yap Kongsi and the Yap Temple.

The land of the building was donated by a banker back in 1924 who founded Ban Hin Lee Bank which is now absobed into Southern Bank.

As Chinese practise ancestral worship, the Yap Kongsi is a place of meeting for all those of the Yap surname.
