Officially known as the Bao Xing Xian Yan Tua Pek Kong Temple (Traditional Chinese: 寶興仙岩大伯公, Simplified Chinese: 宝兴仙岩大伯公)is located in Air Itam Village. As with most Taoist communities, Air Itam has a Tua Pek Kong temple, as the deity is regarded as a protector of the settlement. The Air Itam Tua Pek Kong Temple comprises two shrines. One is beside Jalan Balik Pulau at the bottom of the hill, while another is on the hill slope about 45 minutes from the bottom shrine.
