The Lion God Of Kuan Yin Teng
by lim kah wan
(Weld Quay Penang)
During the British time, The Lion God Of Kuan Yin Teng (the two lions outside the temple) used to go to Weld Quay to play during the night.
One day the British knew that the Lion was active and alive, they thought of stopping it. And after that legend they built the Clock Tower (now house custom office) to block the Feng Sui.
After that the Lion God did not appear again but the Kuan Yin God was very angry and put a spell on the clock tower that on every 15th of a Chinese month the God made the clock break down or break the glass surface of the clock every 15th of a Chinese month.
