Foo Lin Kong Temple

Our rating:

At the foot of Pangkor Hill, in Sungai Pinang Besar, Foo Lin Kong Temple is a massive explosion of symbolic imagery set against a hillside backdrop of forest.

Located at the edge of a kampung, the tiny side street leading to the Chinese temple is only indicated by a small corner sign on Jalan Pinang Besar.

The wonderland entry is guarded by a life-sized gentleman fishing, and the mysterious figurines and painted sculptures continue throughout the temple’s landscaped grounds. The traditional prayer area holds centre stage, but the decorative grounds are more reminiscent of an amusement park or miniature golf green. They also include a tiny version of the Great Wall of China, for no particular reason we could ascertain.
