Chinese Temple? The sign board reads "Xi Yun Dian" (not too clear)

I drove around this area again this morning after breakfast with my boys. It seems there is suppose to be a Tokong King Hoon Thian around this area. There is even a lorong named after it but I couldn't find the orignal Tokong at 3.805017 103.309509. Maybe its moved to 3.807017 103.309906?

So is the picture retaken this morning Tokong King Hoon Thian now relocated at 3.807017 103.309906?

The last 2 characters from the signboard match the word of ".. Hoon Thian".
The 1st character ”西“ doesn't sound like "king" in hokkien/cantonese/hakka. Perhaps some other chinese dialects may pronounce it this way. So at least 75% match to "Tokong King Hoon Thian" :)

Hi Wsian, thanks for your reply. Here's another photo I took of a signboard pointing to the old King Hoon Thian Temple at 3.805017 103.309509 but the chinese characters are different. Could it be a different temple?

I think it is clear that they are 2 different temple, unless there was a name change.
