Bagian depan bawah Kelenteng Kong Miao TMII dengan patung Kilin yang lidahnya menyangga kitab. Kilin adalah mahluk mitos berbadan kijang, berkepala dan bersisik naga, berwarna gilap kehijauan, yang konon muncul saat lahir dan matinya Confucius (551 - 479 SM). Kong Hu Cu atau Konfusius adalah nabi bagi penganut kepercayaan Konghucu.

Kilin is a mythical creature with the body of a deer, with the head and scales of a dragon, dark green in color, which is said to have appeared at the birth and death of Confucius (551 - 479 BC). Kong Hu Cu or Confucius is a prophet for followers of the Confucian belief.



Seperangkat meja kursi kayu berukir sangat indah ada di Kelenteng Kong Miao, bersisian dengan patung Kong Hu Cu. Sandaran punggungnya ada yang berukir naga dan Burung Hong (Phoenix). Kedua ujung sandaran tangan ada yang berukir kepala naga, kepala burung Garuda, juga ukiran keempat sudut mejanya. Pengerjaan ukirannya terlihat teliti dan halus.

A set of exquisitely carved wooden chairs is found at Kong Miao Temple, side by side with a Confucian statue. Its back support is engraved with a dragon and a Hong Bird (Phoenix). The two ends of the armrests are carved with a dragon's head, Garuda's head, as well as carvings on the four corners of the table. The carving work looks meticulous and smooth.

Front view of Qi Fu Dian (Blessing Temple) in the Kong Miao Temple complex, with a statue of a pair of dragons fighting over the precious (Ji Liong Jio Cu) on the front roof. While the rear roof is decorated with a pair of vines.



Di sebelah atas terlihat hiolo Dewa Langit diapait sepasang naga, dan beratap segi delapan dengan kepala naga di setiap sudutnya. Pilar-pilar naga terlihat di samping belakang kiri kanannya. Di bawahnya terdapat tulisan Tionghoa, dan lalu tulisan "Kelenteng Kong Miao Rumah Ibadat Agama Khonghucu. Patung Kilin di depannya, prasasti peresmian yang ditandatangani Situ Hardianti Rukmana pada 23 Desember 2010, dan penjelasan mengani mahluk Kilin pada dinding depan.

Above you can see the sky god hiolo flanked by a pair of dragons, and an octagonal roof with a dragon's head at each corner. Dragon pillars can be seen on the back left and right. Underneath it is Chinese inscription, and then the words "Kong Miao Temple, Confucian Religion Temple. The Kilin statue in front of it, the inauguration inscription signed by Situ Hardianti Rukmana on December 23, 2010, and an explanation of the Kilin creatures on the front wall.



Pemandangan yang lebih dekat pada ukiran pada kursi yang dibuat dengan detail sangat indah. Dua kursi di sebelah kiri sandaran tangannya berukir kepala naga, sedangkan di di sebelahnya berukir kepala burung Garuda. Keempat kaki meja berukir kepala burung Garuda juga di bagian atasnya. Saya kira ini merupakan sebuah mahakarya ukir yang sangat luar biasa. Kursi dan meja ini tampaknya digunakan oleh para petinggi umat dalam acara ibadah bersama.

A closer look at the detailed carvings on the chairs which are exquisite. The two chairs to the left of the armrests are carved with a dragon's head, while next to it is the head of a Garuda bird. The four legs of the table have the head of the Garuda bird also on it. I think this is a very extraordinary carving masterpiece. These chairs and tables seem to be used by high-ranking people in community worship events.



Ada satu patung Kong Hu Cu berukuran besar dan dua lagi berukuran lebih kecil. Bunga tiruan dalam keranjang rotan diletakkan di sisi kiri kanan meja altar. Ajaran Kong Hu Cu selain mementingkan moralitas pribadi dan pejabat pemerintahan, yang berdasar pada sifat-sifat tradisonal Tionghoa. Salah satu kata bijak Kong Hu Cu adalah "Orang yang luar biasa itu sederhana dalam ucapan, tetapi hebat dalam tindakan".

There is one large Confucian statue and two smaller ones. Artificial flowers in rattan baskets are placed on the left and right sides of the altar table. Confucian teachings besides emphasizing personal morality and government officials, are based on traditional Chinese traits. One of the words of Confucian wisdom was "extraordinary people are simple in speech, but great in action".



Tampak muka altar Kong Hu Cu dengan sepasang vas berisi bunga dibungkus plastik, hio, hiolo, dan ada tiga papan berisi tulisan di atas dan samping kiri kanan patung. Tulisan di sebelah atas "Wan Shi Shi Bio" artinya adalah Guru Abadi Dunia. Sedangkan di sebelah kiri ada tulisan "ri(matahari) yue(bulan) hang lun tian(tuhan) di (alam semesta) yan". Di sebelah kanan tulisannya berbunyi "shi shu wan juan sheng xian xin".

Di bawah hiolo terdapat kain beludru berwarna kuning keemasan bersulam Kilin yang diapit oleh sepasang naga.

View from corner of the main room of Kong Miao Temple which is spacious, with a pair of box-shaped lanterns hanging in the ceiling. On the right wall is a window with stained glass, as well as on its above, and a symmetrical wall on the left side of the room. Beneath the hiolo is a golden yellow embroidered cloth embroidered with Kilin flanked by a pair of dragons.



Sebuah hiolo kecil berwarna keemasan sangat indah berukir sepasang naga diletakkan di depan patung Konghucu Klenteng Kong Miao. Batang-batang hio yang baranya telah padam tampak tertancap di tengahnya.

A small golden hiolo carved with a pair of dragons is placed in front of the Konghucu statue of Kong Miao Temple. The incense sticks that had burned out were stuck in the middle.

Ornamen pada bagian bawah atap pelana tampak indah. Lampion merah menggantung di sepanjang langit serambi.

The ornaments at the bottom of the gable look beautiful. Red lanterns hung along the porch ceiling.



Pandangan dekat pada ujung kanan Kelenteng Keberkahan, memperlihatkan patung naga di atas puncak atap depan, suluran di atap belakang, ornamen rumah bertingkat pada ujung krepus, lampion di langit teras, serta ukiran indah sepasang naga berebut mustika pada lubang hawa bundar di dinding bangunan.

Di depan pintu Kelenteng Keberkahan Kong Miao terdapat hiolo Dewa Langit. Di bawah hiolo terdapat simbol Konghucu berupa Genta Rohani berwarna keemasan. Genta Rohani bermakna penyuluh kehidupan, dan keemasan menjadi lambang keluhuran budi manusia beriman dan berkepribadian suci yang bercita-cita tinggi. Lukisan naga tampak di kiri kanan pintu masuk. Klenteng Keberkahan ini berbentuk bujur sangkar, melambangkan bumi atau alam, dan berisikan altar Shen Ming (Para Suci).

In front of the door of Kong Miao Blessing Temple there's a Sky God' hiolo. Beneath the hiolo is a Confucian symbol in the form of a golden Spiritual Bell. The Spiritual Bell means the extension of life, and gold is a symbol of the sublime nature of the believer's human nature and an ambitious holy personality. A painting of a dragon appears on the left and right of the entrance. This Blessing Temple is oval in shape, symbolizing the earth or nature, and contains the altar of Shen Ming (Saints).



Pandangan pada teras Kelenteng Keberkahan dari dekat tambur yang berukuran sedang, namun saya tidak menemukan genta. Genta dan genderang biasanya selalu ada di sebuah kelenteng, karena menjadi lambang kekuatan Yin (genderang) dan Yang (genta).

A view on the terrace of the Blessed Temple near the medium sized drum, but I did not find the bell. Bell and drum are usually always present in a temple, because they symbolize the power of Yin (drum) and Yang (bell).

Pandangan lebih dekat pada tambur dan ukiran sepasang naga berebut mustika pada lubang hawa. Ukiran patung naga itu dibuat dengan detail dan warna indah yang tentu dibuat oleh tangan terampil berseni tinggi. Di kebudayaan Tiongkok, naga melambangkan kekuatan dan tuah yang mengawal air, hujan, dan banjir. Naga adalah Yang (jantan) yang melengkapi Fenghuang (burung Hong, phoenix) yang bersifat Yin (betina).

A closer look at the drum and carvings of a pair of dragons scrambling for the precious on the air hole. The carving of the dragon statue was made with beautiful details and colors that were of course made by highly skilled hands. In Chinese culture, dragons symbolize strength and luck controlling water, rain, and flood. The dragon is the (male) which complements the Fenghuang (Hong bird, phoenix) which is yin (female).
