Eng Teck Temple, Samera, Sadong Jaya

This temple is said to be older than the Tua Pek Kong Asajaya nearby, about 20 minutes drive by car from here.

In the early days before the construction of the Asajaya / Sadong Jaya coastal highway, devotees nearby had to travel by boat to pay respect here.

Tua Pek Kong, Asajaya

Like other Tua Pek Kong temple, Tua Pek Kong Asajaya started as a small wooden temple nearby a small river in Asajaya. 

The temple was initiated mainly due to many drowning incidents of local children nearby the current location. The current temple was rebuilt on the same location after many years of persistent efforts from local devotees on land issue.
