A 107 year-old Buddhist Monastery situated in the heartlands represents the cultural and social roots of Singapore’s Chinese Immigrants.
This remarkable landmark is situated right in the heartlands of Singapore. It was first constructed in 1907 when a wealthy trader was moved by a family coming by boat after taking a pilgrimage.
The temple is built in imitation of a Xichang temple in Fujian but it possesses a distinctly Singaporean architecture style. It is also elaborately decorated and it is a place of worship for Buddhist devotees. Once inside, the temple is painted in red and yellow – colours that the Chinese believe are lucky. It is a place rich in history, and definitely a place not to be missed the next time you are in Singapore.
