Rich Decoration In Chinese Temple - Sze Yah Temple - Kuala Lumpur - Malaysia
Photograph - Photograph
Sze Yah temple, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, a.k.a. Sze Ya Temple and Sin Sze Si Ya Temple. One of the city's oldest temples, this was originally built on another site, in 1864 and rebuilt here in 1882. It was commissioned by Yap Ah Loy, the third Kapital China of Kuala Lumpur and one of the early developers of the city, whose image appears to the left of the alter. It is dedicated to two people who Yap Ah Loy had been in association with during an earlier civil war. Unusually, none of the traditional deities from China are worshipped here.
