Hokkien Kongsi Penang


The Hock Teik Cheng Sin Temple at 57 Armenian Street, Penang is essentially a community temple devoted to the worship of Tua Peh Kong (God of Prosperity & Morality). This unique double-storey temple, built in the 1850's houses four affiliated societies, namely, Tong Kheng Seah, Poh Hock Seah, Cheng Hoe Seah and Hokkien Kongsi.

In the 19th Century, it served as the headquarters of Kean Teik Tong, also known as the Tua Peh Kong Kongsi which was founded in 1844. The Chinese Traders Society took over the ownership of the temple property in 1890 through legal process. Today, the Hock Teik Cheng Sin Temple stands as a permanent reminder of the progress achieved by the Penang Chinese Hokkien community.
