Named after the infamous leader of the 19th century Hakka secret society called the Hai San Clan, the present site was actually Chung Keng Kooi's townhouse as well as a family temple built in the 1890s. The society fought in the nineteenth century tin wars in Perak, also known as the Larut Wars, and managed to take over the premises from its rival—the Ghee Hin Triad. The townhouse-cum-temple is decorated with timber screens, cast iron and stencilled glass and is fenced in by an elaborate gold-greenish iron gate. The interior of the temple boasts ceramic decorations, glass chandeliers and religious artifacts.
