The temple is located on the hill road that leads to Teluk Tempoyak. It was registered on 26 November, 2001.



Getting there

The Batu Maung Bottle Temple is best approached by car. From the Batu Maung village, take the road towards Permatang Damar Laut. Turn in at the junction to Teluk Tempoyak.

What to see and do

The star attraction of Cheng Choo Tze Temple are the hundreds of empty bottles that are used to decorate its walls. These include mostly Chinese wine bottles and beer bottles. It could be that these bottles were placed here because the deity of Cheng Choo Tze Temple is fond of drinking.
