We made a detour from Kuala Lumpur to Johor Bahru, and decided to take the coastal road from Batu Pahat to Kukup.
On the way to the town center, I was attracted by an impressive looking Chinese Temple. So we made a U-turn, and found the temple name ‘Jian Nan Si?’ (建南寺).
I decided to test out a point-and-shoot camera. So I pointed to the dragon statue on top of the roof.
Did you notice the 3 dragon flies dancing with the dragon?
Further zoom at 600mm revealed more delicate craftsmanship of the porcelain statues.
This temple was established since 1953 and newly renovated in 1998 (sponsored by Tan Sri Lee Kim Yew 丹斯里李金友). The workmanship was impressive.
It was pure luck that the ‘temple is calling’ me for a stop over. I am glad we did pay a visit to this Chinese temple. Along the coastal road towards Johor Bahru, we noticed there were few more relatively impressive temples.
Wishing the temples can bring peace of mind and prosperity to the devotees.
