During your visit to the Jonker Street area there is a small temple, called the Hokkien Huay Kuan Temple that you can visit. A feast to the eyes, the exterior of this well-restored historic clan house beckons the passers-by. A pair of symmetrical pillars with dragon relief graces the front porch, beyond which the eyes are instantly arrested by a striking set of door and wall panels with intricate carvings and bold colors. Two rows of Chinese characters frame the entrance door, composing a poignant eulogy to the achievements of the clan and its members. Once inside, an ancient scene comes alive instantly. The large ancestral house is a wonder of Chinese architectural styles, customs and relics. The interior of the temple offers little to see but the entrance area is well worth a quick stop. The entrance is very well decorated, featuring the expected dragon and tiger murals and a most interesting pillar arrangement, both being scaled by dragons.
