Teng Yun Temple was built in the 1960s and is the oldest Chinese temple in Brunei. China’s influence has been present in Brunei for centuries. The Chinese population in Brunei came here to work following the discovery of oil in the 1920s. Now the Chinese demographic is 10% of Brunei’s population. This is the biggest minority in the country. Teng Yun Temple has a large colourful and bold exterior. Its interior is filled with hand-painted tiles telling stories from Chinese legends, joss smoke and gilded statues. Teng Yun Temple is also popular due to its location. It is opposite the Kianggeh market.
