Ong Pagoda information
Lonely Planet review
The very ornate, brightly painted Ong Pagoda is a fully fledged Chinese pagoda and a very active place of worship. The red-faced god on the altar is deified general Quan Cong who is believed to offer protection against war and is based on a historical figure, a 3rd century soldier.
The Ong Pagoda was founded in 1556 by the Fujian Chinese Congregation, but has been rebuilt a number of times. Recent visitors from Taiwan and Hong Kong have contributed money for the pagoda’s restoration, which explains why it is in such fine shape.
