Temple of the Immortal Girl (GPS: 4.85316, 100.74401), or Ho Hsein-ku Miaou, He Xiangu Miau, Taiping, is a temple dedicated to the worship of the Immortal Woman Ho (or He, in pinyin).

According to Chinese mythology, Hé Qiñng is one of the Eight Immortals, a group of legendary fairies. He Xiangu originates from Yong Prefecture in Linglin County, Hunan Province, during the Tang Dynasty (618-907AD). When she was born, He Xiangu had 6 long hair from the top of her head. At the age of 14-15, she had a dream where a divine being appeared to her and instructed her to eat powdered mica, telling her it would make her immortal. It is believed that she ascended into the sky and became an immortal.

The Temple of the Immortal Girl shares the same compound with the Cantonese Association, or Kwan-Tung Hui-Kwan of Taiping. The association was founded by Kapitan China Chung Keng Kwee and other prominent members of the Chinese society in 1887.

It is interesting to note that this is one of the examples of generosity of Kapitan Chung Keng Kwee, who is a Hakka from the Hai San society, to the Cantonese of the Ghee Hin society. Refer also to the Ng Fook Thong, the United Cantonese District Association, in Penang.
