Tua Pek Kong Temple information
Established sometime before 1871 and damaged by Allied bombs in 1945, this colourful riverfront temple incorporates both a Taoist hall, on the ground floor, and a Chinese Buddhist sanctuary, on the 1st floor. For a brilliant view over the town and up and down the muddy Batang Rejang, climb the seven-storey Kuan Yin Pagoda , built in 1987; the best time is sunset, when a wheeling swirl of swiftlets buzzes the tower at eye level. Ask English-speaking Mrs Lee, at the ground-floor desk, for the key; as you ascend, don’t forget to lock the gate behind you.
