BROGA SAK DATO TEMPLE IN SEMENYIH

There is a 'hidden' gem in Semenyih which is popular among many tourists and locals asking 4D numbers from La Tuk Kong in the temple. This 16 years old temple is surrounded by many beautiful statues depicting the many characters from Chinese customs and folklore and a beautiful garden at the top. The temple has formed a foundation known as Orchard of the Fruits of Kindness in 1992.

  1. ;-) Jocel,

    From your pics, this place have certainly developed beautifully thru' the years.

    Many years ago on a work trip, I saw a tortise on the road nearby; and took it to place in the fish pond.

    So, each time whenever I am at Sak Dato temple, my thoughts goes back to that unusual day and would like to believe that one of the few tortises in the fish pond is that particular one.

    Thanx for rekindling my memories.

    Kind regards. JamesQuah
