Abstract:

     The worship of Xian Shiye (Sage Counsellor) is an unique phenomenon in Malaysia and is centred on the belief in Capitan Sheng Ming Li who was a pioneer in the early development of Sungai Ujong. Xian Shiye Temples are mainly distributed in the central part of Peninsular Malaysia such as Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Negeri Sembilan, but has since spread to Sungai Siput in Perak (north), Bukit Mor in Johor (south) and Gambang in Pahang (east).

     Currently, research and publications relating to the worship of Xian Shiye are few. Based on the research of other scholars, fieldworks and investigations were carried out in different places to gather materials to contribute to the study of this subject.
