Tua Pek Kong Temple

The Seven Story Pagoda of Sibu. 

The distinctive Seven Story Pagoda is a famous landmark in downtown Sibu, dating back to 1870, with most of the recognizable features added in 1897. The temple miraculously survived the 1928 fire that destroyed most of the city, but was badly damaged by Allied bombing in WWII. It has been rennovated several times since.
