The lion is the guardian of the Khoo Temple, you will find in his mouth a rolling stone carved inside, you gently put your hand to roll it so that it will bring luck and prosperity for you and your family.
The forefathers of the Khoo family who emigrated from South China built it as a clanhouse for members of the Khoo family in 1851. It was burnt down in 1894, allegedly struck by lightning, and the Chinese believed that it was due to its resemblance to the Emperor's palace, which provoked the gods. A scaled-down version was later built in 1902 and completed in 1906. (source Wikipedia)
