A short story about this Square. It was actually a clan house for the Khoo's family. This building which is partly a temple and meeting hall for the same clan or surname. Leong Shan Tong Khoo Kongsi, or Khoo Kongsi for short, is on of the most distinctive Chinese clan associations in Malaysia. It knit and defensive confregation of buildings and a magnificent clanhouse.

In Penang, there was alot of Kongsis, but for this, the clanhouse of the Koo's, is far the finest. The construction was first considered around year 1853 but it was not built until year 1898. The complete building was so magnificent and elaborate that nobody was surprised when the roof cough fire on the very night it was completed. That misfortunate was simply interpreted as a message from the heaven that they'd really been overdoing things. so the Khoos rebuilt it in a marginally less grandiose style.

The present kongsi, dating back from year 1906 and extensively renovated in the year 1950's, is also known as the '' Dragon mountain Hall;;. It is a colorful mix of dragon, statues, paintings lamps colored tiles and carvings.
