Ong Bac Pagoda

Built by the Fukien Chinese just after World War II, Ong Bon Pagoda is dedicated to Ong Bon, the guardian of wealth, happiness and virtue.

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

Being the god of wealth many worshippers come here to burn paper money in the temple's furnace, which is said to bring financial blessings to participants. The centrepiece of the pagoda is a delicately crafted wood and gold altar with a statue of Ong Bon. Several beautiful murals here depict animals such as lions and dragons. The pagoda is small, but worth a quick visit.
