One of the oldest and most important Hokkien temples in the city, Thian Hock Keng Temple was built in the mid-19th century by the clan as a place of prayer for Chinese immigrants. To understand the temple’s stature in Indonesian history and culture, survey the plaque presented to the clan by the Qing Dynasty Emperor Guang Xu in 1907. The temple’s structure, steeped in a tradition of Ancient Chinese architecture, was built without nails. The clan used stone, tiles, and wood to craft the intricate, ornate carvings of dragons and phoenixes that adorn temple.

  • It's a very nice temple, worth visiting. It is very colourful and there are lots of Chinese statues.

  • This is, in my opinion, the most relaxing temple in Singapore. If you’re there, you can express your wish… or as many wishes as you want, why not?

  • Inspiring to visit! I spent a later afternoon in this temple. Can feel positive vibrations. If you can add a bookshop or library with books/material on Taoism, it would be awesome.
