Chee Yam Chuan Temple
Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock, Malacca, Malaysia 75200Map
Neighborhood: Old Town

An architectural highlight along Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock features a turn-of-the century ancestral temple belonging to descendants of the Chee family. Adjoined by shophouses on both sides, the premises spot a neo-classic blend of Dutch, Portuguese, Chinese and English styles conceived by a Eurasian architect in 1919. The origin of such an abode of unmatched opulence is rooted in the success of the Chee ancestors who excelled in rubber and banking commerce. A crowning tower on the rooftop of the house became the highest structure in the old town for many years.
