Sculpture on the Temple Pillar

Paloh Ku Miu (Paloh Old Temple) is one of the oldest Chinese temple in town. The hundred-year old temple houses many sculptures that brought in from China a century ago. Most of it are vivid & amazing legendary characters in Chinese history or myth. My guess on these few characters on the left pillar at main entrance could be the Tang Dynasty monk Xuan Zhuang & his three students that appear in the legend of "Xi You Ji" (Journey to the West).
