A recent addition to the Tanjung Tokong Tua Pek Kong temple area is a small park that features colorful LED lighted flowers. This small park near the seaside is built about a very small hill behind the temple, with stairs going around it.

Located at the coastal area of Tanjung Tokong, this Tua Pek Kong Temple is famous for its flame watching ritual (an event known as “Chneah Hoay” event) on the 14th night of Chinese New Year, which is also the eve of Tua Pek Kong’s Birthday. This event held annually, involves the observation of the flame of the temple’s ceremonial urn which will forecast the economic health of the year according to the local belief. This temple is also the origin of the name Tanjung Tokong and is believed to be the first temple built to worship the Tua Pek Kong, a Chinese Taoist deity in the country.
Recently, the temple area further underwent some renovations with a small outdoor park being built around and behind the temple.
