This is a small temple located at the foot of Bukit China. (The hill is an old historically-rich cemetery.)

There is nothing interesting here, expect the fact that there is a well-known ancient well that is located right at the side of this temple. 100m to the right of the temple is the WW2 memorial.

This is a historical site for Malaysian Chinese. It is a temple of multi functions. The main goddess, Tua Pek Gong is a local Taowism goddess controlling the local land and in charges of wealth.

Ma Zhu is the lady god managing the sea water to ensure safety of people with job related to sea life.

Another picture that being worshipped is the Kapitan of local Chinese during the Dutch era of Melaka history.
