Cileungsi, Klenteng

A place for praying for the South Fujian community that was located approximately 60km away from Jakarta, east of Cibinong on the main road heading towards Bogor. This temple offers leaves for medicine. There is a medium from Empeh Bongkong who practices in this temple and gives advice to the congregation. In the past, this temple was founded by the Chinese farmers community who opened the inland grounds in the early 18th Century. After some time, the founders began to lose their Chinese traits. Cileungsi Temple is a symbol of Chinese assimilation with the indigenous community. Predictions in two languages were very sought after. And even when the temple required massive restoration, the expenses were borne by both these ethnic groups.
