Sze Ya Temple

Free Entry


Founded by Yap Ah Loy, the third and most powerful of the “Kapitan Cina”, or Chinese Chiefs, this lavish, beautiful Taoist temple is the oldest in the city dating back to 1864. Its rather unusual position behind several shop houses, is believed to have been determined by geomancy or Feng Shui, creating an unusual angle for the walls, arches and stairways.
