Chin Swee Temple at Genting Highlands

Chin Swee Temple is situated in the most scenic site of Genting Highlands. Within the Temple is seated a statue of the Reverend Master Chin Swee, who has long been referred to as a deity in Fujian Province for his supernatural abilities to summon rain and drive away evil spirits. The Temple is situated on a 28-acre plot of rocky, forested land donated by Genting Group founder, Tan Sri Dato' Seri (Dr) Lim Goh Tong.

Irene, PR from Resort World Genting told us that when Tan Sri Dato' Lim stayed at the hill side to explore the forest of Genting at that time, he dreamt that Reverend Master Chin Swee had appeared at his dream. Master Chin informed Tan Sri Dato' Lim to proceed with the development of Genting and he'll protect and ensure the smooth development of Genting till it success. To thank Master Chin for the protection, Tan Sri Dato' Lim had build a Chin Swee Temple located 4,600 feet above sea level and the Temple is about 5-10 minutes drive down from the peak of the mountain.

Each of the nine dragons on this wall, which stands at the main entrance of the Temple represents it different type of luck. For instance, in ancient meeting a yellow dragon would be destined to become a high-ranking official.

Take a vivid, sometimes disturbing, but ultimately enlightening trip through the ten levels of Chinese hell and discover the principles of karma, cause and effect in Buddhism. So, if you don't want to go to hell and suffered there, then be good to everyone. Good lessons for my Little Angels so that when they grow up, they'll become a kind person that willing to help out.

Me and my Little Angels had a great time praying for Master Chin Swee and all the God here. I felt so relax as met up with so many God statues which were finely crafted just like a real one surrounded by beautiful mountains in a cooling and fresh air. Every statue had its very own story from heaven till hell and I'm glad that my Little Angels had learned something useful by visiting Chin Swee Temple. Hope Master Chin Swee and all the God there will protect all of us from illness and gave us a better health, wealth and prosperity for coming years.

  9. I visited Chin Swee Temple 5 years ago. It was so huge though so didn't get the time to explore. There weren't many people around so it seemed so peaceful up there at that time.
