Tan Sri Lim Goh Tong Statue at Chin Swee Temple, Genting Highlands
Today is City Daily Photo Theme Day, the topic is "Statues"
At the Chin Swee Caves Temple, Genting Highlands, there is a granite statue of the late Tan Sri Lim Goh Tong (1918 - 23 Oct 2007) who was the founder of Genting Highlands Resort. He was born in Anxi, Fujian Province, China. He came to Malaysia in 1937 at the age of 19. To read more about this great man, you can click on the name.
"This statue is erected by Genting Group and the Chin Swee Caves Temple Building Society in appreciation of Tan Sri Lim’s leadership in the development of Genting Highlands Resort and Chin Swee Caves Temple. The statue is also a show of gratitude for his immense philanthropic contributions to society and a mark of respect for his great success in business.
There are inscriptions on a plaque behind the late Tan Sri Lim’s statue describing his role as the founder of the Chin Swee Caves Temple Society and as the man who was instrumental in leading a group from the Anxi Clan to build this Temple to commemorate the good deeds of the Reverend Chin Swee. The inscriptions also document the late Tan Sri Lim’s personal contributions and devotion to the continuing upgrading and improvement of the Temple’s facilities in all aspects."
