iSurprise Lin Loon Taung Compound

Living next to the railway tracks

Railway workers

This compound is where many of the railway workers live, around 100 families in total. The housing is very basic, with very few amenities, but is home to a wonderful close-knit community. With a smile, you are very welcome here.

Meet a nat

Around here you will see small wooden shrines. These are for the Nankarine Mei Daw Nat (Venus Nat). The spirit of the female buffalo. A long time ago she rescued the life of a young prince by feeding him like one of her own. She even ended up giving her life for him when he was in danger. The prince created a buffalo head in her everlasting memory
