Its name Kerng Tang Kou Bioh(粤东古庙)in Teochew dialect means \"East Guangdong\'s Ancient Temple\" was derived from Teochew’s geographical location in east of Guangdong/Kwangtung(粤东/广东) province in China and its ancient Teochew patron deity worshipped at the temple, the \"Tua Nang Yah Kong\" (大人爷宫) or \"Xuán Tiān Shàngdì\" (玄天上帝) (literally the Lord of Profound Heaven or Black Heavenly Emperor God). During the \"Chap Goh Mei\" celebration on the 15th day of first lunar month of Chinese calendar, the last day of Chinese New Year festival, devotees will pray at the temple and observe a traditional custom, called \"Puak Tau Sai\"(博豆狮).
