    It is a temple, 40 years before the British landed in Penang in Penang drifted from Fujian and large count Duke (Tua PerCon). Once inside entrance is narrow but wide. Grandeur is the main shrine, there. This guidebook was written Poh Hock Seah Twa Peh Kong. Across the road from Yap kongsi, about 2 minutes on foot from the Khoo kongsi is now. Chinese temples are concentrated around here, so efficiency is very good.

    It is a Chinese temple located near the intersection of Armenian Street and Canon. And "Fujian Temple" written above the entrance facing the Armenian Street. Through a narrow entrance and enters the courtyard-like space. And there was written kentoku Hall not thinkable from the narrow entrance, there are two-storey buildings. It is wonderful, such as the decoration of the roof.

    Small temple tribute to God of City, Fu De Zheng Shen (ho tek ceng sin). Gone through conservation before, but lack of maintenance. Still beautiful in its existence
