This Chinese temple hides itself among shops, restaurants, mosque, small boutique hotels, two storeyed sino- Portuguese buildings . There is no admission fee for visiting / there is incenses burning pot / altar for offerings / worshipping Chinese god for health/ fortune/ success . There is shrine of tiger god and also shrines of Chinese ancestry at the back of the temple.

Well restored and looked after, remember to respect the worshipers whilst taking photos as this is an 'operational' temple.

The temple is located very near to Jonker street and it was not far from our hotel.
The interior are very well decorated and it's recommended to stay some minutes inside and look (in a discrete way of course) the people who pray.

This is an interesting temple to visit, especially around the Chinese New Year. A very colourful interior with lots of decorations. This is a fully function temple, so make sure you respect the users.

Nothing overly exciting about this Chinese temple. Fairly typical,especially since I have visited thousands of them over the years. Unless you love Chinese temples or have not been in one,then visit,if not you can skip the visit.

The Cheng Hoon Teng Temple is the oldest functioning Chinese temple in Malaysia and is one that’s
lavishly decorated with Chinese sculptures, ceramic sculptures on the roofs, golden paintings on temple doors. This is one of many buildings worth a visit in Malacca. As it was just after Chinese New Year and still within the celebrations period, many of the decorations were still and the Chinese style lanterns made the place even more beautiful.

One of my favourite things is a rock garden at the back of the temple feature a limestone sculpture decorated with many Taoist, Buddhist and Confucian figure, centred around the Goddess of Mercy.

About 700 years old and still offer blessing to the Chinese populace in Melaka and visitors. Most crowded during Chinese New Year. Adjunct temple and opera stage in the surrounding add to visitation more complete. The history of Melaka dates back to about the same number of years.
