Very old Chinese temple in Kuala Terengganu

One of the attractive spots of tourism in Kuala Terengganu which we visited was the very traditional Taoist-Buddhist temple Ho Ann Kiong which was first built in 1801 and refurbished twice in 1916 and 1996. It is located in the one-street 'Chinatown' where there are shops that sell pork openly, and there are, of course, also kedai-kedai kopi, like the shop operated by my family in those years at Clare Street in Ipoh. Mrs. Cheng also introduced me to some local Chinese Christians, who told me that there have always been churches and chapels around KT.

Off to KT to share blogging skills with friends
