Lee's Ancestral Hall of Perak

When the Chinese migrated from China to South East Asia, they experienced difficult and helpless life in this new homeland. Therefore, there were many associations formed according to the originated province or family surname to take care those from same clan. Lee is a major family surname in Chinese society and there are Lee associations around the world. This is the Lee's Ancestral Hall of Perak. There are seasonal prayers to the ancestor held in this building and I used to attend with my father when I was young. There were scholarship and bounty given away anually for the good academic achievement students.
