Notes: The Khoo Kongsi clan house, built by the Khoo family of South China in 1851, is located in George Town, Penang, Malaysia.  In 1894, lighting struck the clan house and it burned down.  A scaled-down version of the original was built in the early 1900s.  This building is the clan temple, which is dedicated to clan's patron deities. It was built in 1906, and houses a collection of ancestral tablets. According to DaniDiving, it is the grandest clan temple in the country.
