SABAH

 

 

The ?Land Below the Wind? or Sabah, is the site of several well-known Buddhist temples. Among them are the Puh Toh Tze Temple, located off Tuaran Road, 15km from Kota Kinabalu. Built in 1980, the temple stands out with its traditional Chinese roofing and structure. Ten large statues adorn the temple with the statue of Kuan Yin dominating the main entrance. The Puu Jih Shih Buddhist Temple is situated on the hilltop above Tanah Merah, south of Sandakan town. The temple, which is the biggest in Sabah, was built in 1987. The ornate temple is a blaze of red and gold, with coiling dragons, gold gilded Buddhas and hundreds of gleaming lamps. Visitors will be able to catch a breathtaking view of Sandakan Bay from where the temple is located.

 
 
 

SARAWAK

 

 

Malaysia?s largest state houses a number of temples, scattered all over its many districts. The Tua Pek Kong Temple is the oldest in Kuching, the capital city. This ornate temple is believed to have been built in 1843, although official records only recognised its existence in 1876. It boasts authentic Chinese architecture with colourful dragons along the walls. In Sibu, the Eng Ann Tua Pek Kong is famous for its seven-storey pagoda which stands majestically beside the mighty Sungai Rejang (Rejang River). The temple is a distinctive landmark in Sibu town. It is also known as The Great Uncles temple. Miri is the site of the largest Taoist temple in Southeast Asia. Located in Krokop, the San Ching Tian Temple has become one of Miri?s major attractions since it was opened in the year 2000.
