About Leong See Kah Miew
Leong See Kah Miew was founded by people surnamed Leong (or Liang in Mandarin), who hailed from Guangdong. The clan association was established in 18711. Six years later, one of its prominent members, Liang Ya Zhong, donated the plot on Muntri Street to the association. The clansmen then rallied amont themselves and managed to raise Straits Dollars $1,549 for the construction of their clan temple.
The old clan temple on Muntri Street was used until 1966, when it was decided that the building has become too run down for repair. The clan then held another fund raising. They managed to raise M$30,000 which went to the purchase of the present 10,494 sq ft plot on Perak Road. The Perak Road premises was completed in 1995 and officially opened in 2000.
