Located at Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman, the century-old Chinese temple is the oldest of its kind in Kuching. It is particularly famous for its Wang Kang celebration to commemorate the spirit of the dead.

The temple was supposed to have been built as early as 1843 but official records only recognised its existence in 1876 when temple devotees in the community made various repairs and renovations to it.
