PORT KLANG: Two antique brass joss stick pots have been stolen from a temple which has been hit thrice by thieves in the past month.

The brass pots were custom made for the Klang Qing Lin Si Temple in Pandamaran here more than five decades ago, said temple committee deputy president Lian Beng Ho.

The latest theft was discovered last Friday, leaving the temple with just one brass pot.

In the earlier years, he said there were more than 20 brass pots of various sizes placed in the temple.

Through the years, he said many of them had gone missing or had been stolen with only three left at their original locations.

He said the temple was willing to buy back the brass pots should it surface in the market for sale.

“I hope anyone who come across such items informs us immediately. These brass pots have a historical significance to the temple,” he ad­­ded.

“The donation box hidden inside the temple was also pried open with only a RM5 note left inside,” he said.

“We have handed over the CCTV footage to the police,” he said, adding that the CCTV was installed last week.
