    Modern temple

    by l_joo Updated Jan 7, 2005

    Too rigid-minded probably to think that temple must be constructed the red red curly curly rooftop way, not today anymore. Here in Cheras, residents already accepted to pray in modern house, terrace house turned temple is the latest local custom of Malaysian-Chinese.

    Modern temple

    by l_joo Updated Jan 7, 2005

    This gate of moden temple is made of this meterial, not what you think those in the movies. Modern art can be anything you like, temple is also going the art way to accept all changes. This is a terrace house temple, latest.

    Modern temple

    by l_joo Updated Jan 7, 2005

    This is another Modern temple in Cheras' residential area. You can see the Buddhism logos here, that's probably the THT (terrace house temple)'s way of religious belief, to self advertise I guess. You are welcome to pray here.

    Street dining

    by l_joo Updated Jan 7, 2005

    Street dining is absolutely accustomed, everybody seem quite happy and normal to eat on the parking line. Cars have to give way for peoples dining here. Sometimes cars and peoples cramped together as one. Local custom for sure.

    Modern temple

    by l_joo Updated Jan 7, 2005

    This is one part of the modern temple, the traditional part maybe. Built in front of the terrace house temple is this red traditional thing, for incense sticks burning for good fortune to you.

    A closer look of an Apartment-temple in red. This is probably the resident's soul needs, good and convenience to have one directly in where they live.
