The Siew San Teng (Tau Pek Kong) Temple in Kuching, Sarawak, Borneo, Malaysia has retained this spot since 1770. It is across the street from the Kuching river walk (and the small Chinese history museum). The temple itself has been renovated and rebuilt many times.

The temple is an average Chinese temple in my opinion. It is so convenient if you are in Kuching and at all interested in temples you might as well go.

The small Chinese History Museum across the street provides a brief look at the Chinese influence in Kuching; if you are there it is worth 15 minutes.
