The First Chinese Temple in Brunei Town

The Chinese New Year is coming up. I have done a number of blog entries about the Chinese New Year and Chinese temples in the past. I thought I will add in more photographs about the old Chinese temple which was originally located at the waterfront facing the Kampong Ayer. I went through the Australian War Memorial archives and found a number of photographs taken during the Second World War.







All the photographs were taken on 14 June 1945 when the Australian Army finally entered Brunei Town after landing a couple of days before in Muara. The photographs are all public domain now as the copyrights have expired.

If you are interested reading about the history of the temple and my other entries on the same subject, you can click below:
