Abstract:

      The belief in the Wang Ye is a cultural practice among the Chinese in Malaysia, a belief that is particularly common in Fujian and Taiwan. Coming largely from Fujian, Chinese migrants brought with them images of their deities and various related items in search of a peaceful life in Malaya. Upon their safe arrival, they erected temples in gratitude for the protection of their village deity.

      The Liu Sheng Fu Wang Ye Temple in Melaka originated from Hong Bang village in the Nan-An county of Fujian. Worship of the deity at this temple was inaugurated in 1920, which has since spread to six others throughout Malaysia. This study will examine the spread and diffusion of the Liu Sheng Fu Wang Ye Temple from different perspectives.
