浮羅岸另一個地標,同時也是古晉華人最古老的信仰中心,正是坐落在河濱公園對面三叉路口小丘上的壽山亭大伯公廟。


這座已有兩百多年歷史的古廟,可說是古晉市民心目中永遠的老地標,百年來香火鼎盛,每逢初一十五,人潮更是絡繹不絕。甚至連外國遊客都驚歎它的魅力,也到這裡焚香膜拜,祈求平安。
這座被本地人重視的古廟,起初只是一間小茅屋,200多年來進行過無數次的修建,如今已是一座美輪美奐的建築物了。此外,在這裡的後園還保有先賢們開發古晉時所擁有的三口井之一,而這也是僅存的唯一口古井。


古晉壽山亭大伯公廟是砂州最古老的廟宇之一,並已被州政府的文化遺產法令下,被列為歷史性建築物,也是古晉著名的地標及旅遊名勝地。

DEITY TUA PEK KONG

This temple is called SIEW SAN TENG TUA PEK KONG. The Host Deity is TUA PEK KONG.

TUA PEK KONG or Earth Deity refers to the same deity. The proper salutation for Earth Deity is "HOCK TECK CHENG SHIN". The Hockien and Teochew Chinese in South East Asia call "HOCK TECK CHENG SHIN1' as Earth Deity and his temple as HOCK TECK Temple while Hakka Chinese call him "PEK KONG" or "HOCK SHIN" and his temple as "TUA PEK KONG Temple" or "HOCK TEE" (land of prosperity). "HOCK TECK CHENG SHIN" or "TUA PEK KONG" originated from ancient China where the society at large was agrarian, dependent on farming. Ancient Chinese were thus inclined to worship the land, believing the Earth Deity was the protector of their crops and had been doing so for few thousand years. After they had personified the Earth Deity, a lot of folktales appeared. Such folktales were all related to the respect for some good government officers and kind hearted people after their demise. During YAW SOON Dynasty (2357 BC) and ZHOU Dynasty (1134 BC) Chinese people used "The Earth Deity" as symbol for worshipping excellent agricultural officers who had taught farmers good methods of cultivation while they were alive.

In China, Chinese regard Earth Deity as Deity in charge of earth and protector of good harvest who is also able to suppress evil spirits, to cure sickness and assist people to get rich.

Chinese people have a strong belief in Earth Deity. This strong belief later spread to the Chinese community in South East Asia.

The 2nd day of the 2nd lunar month is the official birthday of the Earth Deity while the 2nd day of the 8th lunar month is said to be the ascension day of the Earth Deity. But in South East Asia the devotees fix this ascension day on 15th of the 8th lunar month and regard it as another birthday of the Earth Deity.
