Temple Fair for self reliant community support

Annually for 9 days the JiuWangye temple in Ampang New Village is turned into a temple fair where young and old from near and far come and offer their prayers. This fair brings people together and raised fund to support local charities including a dialysis center, a school, old folks home and other community charity. This is an example of Malaysian Chinese self reliant way of keeping their culture and cumminty alive.

For the 2012 Fair, it is estimated that the Temple raised some RM1.2million from donations, leasing of stalls and spaces to various merchandise merchants and food stalls. The temple will apply these funds to support its various community charity.
