27. Giok Hong Tian, 1887, needs conservation

My dad used to come to this temple with his mother when he was a kid. He remembers the place was commonly known as Tee Kong Tua. This Tee Kong Tua is very different from the Foochow style Tee Kong Tua in Penang. Anyway, he also vividly recalls that there was a dentist on the same row of shophouses adjoining the temple whom he had visited once in a while. This particular dentist apparently was blind in one eye! There was also a rice shop nearby that my granny used to frequent.
