Phase 2

Phase 2 : Auxiliary Buildings & Main Entrance Gate

With the main temple fully restored, the trustees embarked on restoring the auxiliary buildings and the main entrance under Phase 2 of the restoration works. Work commenced in April 2003 and was completed in May 2004.

The auxiliary buildings are located in the temple's courtyard encompassing the main temple building. These include the hall housing the deities Tua Pek Kong, Chia Lan Pusa, Saint Boon Cheong, and the Founders and Kapitans' Altar.

A simple prayer ceremony was conducted to mark the commencement of Phase 2. The same restoration methodology as in Phase 1 was applied throughout the restoration process.

The artisans scraped off layers of paint and plaster and discovered these old frescoes underneath them. The frescoes were then skillfully restored.

Damaged tiles (right) were carefully removed and replaced with new tiles.

The pavilions have subsided due to differential settlement, causing the ridge to crack. The committee decided to strengthen the column bases to resolve the problem.
