Centipede Temple

Centipede Temple is the nickname given to Then Tze Temple which is located along Jalan Temiang in the northern part of Seremban.

The temple, also known as Then Tze Khoon, sits on a ridge at the top of Wu Gong Hill (Bukit Jung) about 127 metres above sea level. From its vantage point overlooking green and pleasant countryside, the temple enjoys the breeze from both sides of the hill. The temple is over 140 years old and its beauty and fame attract visitors from all over Malaysia and beyond. Devotees have to climb 264 steps to reach the temple.

There is a three storey pagoda with a laughing Buddha statue on the top floor. Although Then Sze is a Taoist temple, it does contain Buddhist images as well, in common with many Chinese temples in Malaysia. The main Then Sze Holy temple is built into the rock face and contains a drum, a Qing Dynasty bell, an ornate door, antique lanterns and ceiling hangings. Other shrines outside are called the Purple Cane Gazebo and the Datuk Altar.
