If we walk along Jalan Sultan from A to B, Jalan Tun HS Lee is the first main road we see at the junction. Take a left turn and soon we will reach the Kuan Ti Temple.
Kuan Ti is the God of War & Literature and has many names. He is also known as Guan Gong, or Guan Yu. This deity is highly respected as the people's defender due to his righteous, loyal and heroic character. In Hong Kong, the police as well as triad members worship him. You can find his altar at police stations as well as underground triad associations halls. Businessmen worship him and you can also find him in many homes.
As a mark of respect for all temple deities, it is usually not recommended to take full view picture portraits of them.
The picture above shows the guan dao and guan jien (Kuan Di’s sword and spear) which are kept as a pair at an altar in the temple. To read more about this temple, please visit here.
There are some fruit stalls and food stalls beside the Kuan Ti temple. In this picture alone, you can see Malaysia's 3 main races, Chinese, Malay and Indian. Can you see the temple, slightly hidden on the right?
