a colourful front
Dec 2019
When walking down Jalan Kianggeh along the small river of that name towards the Tamu Kianggeh, the towns main market, I saw almost on the opposite of it the front of this not very big Chinese temple, apparently built in 1960.

Chinese have been present in Brunei since centuries, mainly as merchants. The majority though came to work here after the discovery of oil in the 1920's, thus in Britsh times. Now with about 10% of the population they form the biggest minority in the country.

Chinese temple

I thing it is the only Chinese temple in Bandar Seri Begawan. A new high building is built close to the temple not so long time ago, so you cannot take a good photo of this beautiful building.

Small but ornate.

I was lucky enough to be here during a lunchtime, just before Friday Prayers when the city comes to a stand still, so this temple was particularly busy, presumably used by worshippers on their break whilst Muslims are at the mosques. Anyway, it’s a peaceful, pretty place and has some lovely decorations. Of particular note are the beautiful panels on the side walls, towards the back.

Chinese Temple Amid Some Modern High Rise

It was stated this was the only Chinese Buddhist Temple in the city that has very significant Mosques.It was a fairly typical Buddhist temple (built in the 1960's) and interesting and worth a look.

if you are not much of a fan of temples, you may skip this one, but offering a prayer would not hurt

Small Chinese Temple
Jul 2018 • Solo
This is the only Chinese temple in the capital of Brunei and it's worth seeking out, even though it's very small. Free to visit and you can keep your shoes on, it's got some interesting tile work to see, plus some interesting statues.

Wonderful history behind the temple
May 2018 • Solo
Heard from the local that one of the Sultans hid inside this temple whilst being chased during war period and the people helped him, therefore it's very meaningful to the generations, therefore this temple will definitely not be demolished no matter what.

The only Chinese temple in Brunei
May 2018 • Friends
...which is surprising given the number of Chinese who were amongst Brunei's earliest settlers. Brunei acknowledges this heritage with this temple, which was well visited by locals when we were there. It's a fairly modern temple (the original site is now the home of a mosque, we were told). Free admission and worth a short stop.
