This temple, Ping Sien Si, is also known as Tua Pek Kong Temple, or Kuan Yin Temple. It is located in a small Malay fishing village in Pasir Panjang Laut, Sitiawan, Perak.
This temple was actually established over a hundred years ago, but during the past few years, has been developed, at a cost of RM7.5 million thus far, to be a major tourist attraction, especially with its 99 statues of Chinese deities and legendary characters, mostly facing the Straits of Malacca. It is home to the tallest “Tua Pek Kong” statue in the world, standing at 48 feet.
The temple committee has plans to include an additional forty statues, also handcrafted from China, in the near future. This Ping Sien Si temple is a must visit for shutterbugs, and any one who has even the slightest interest in Chinese culture.
