Loyang Tua Pek Kong Temple, History, Events & Opening Hours, Singapore
Back then, devotees of varying faiths contributed money for the establishment of a simple hut on the beach for worship, although a 1996 fire ravaged the site.
Devotees once again came to the rescue and donated money to build a brand new temple; this time, one with a tiled roof and brick walls.
The new temple was completed in the year 2000 at 62G Loyang Way, but in 2007, it moved to its current location at 20 Loyang Way. Today, over 20,000 devotees visit the temple each month, although, during certain religious festivals, there are certainly much more than that. Occasionally, animals are brought to the temple as a means of uplifting the atmosphere.
Aside from devotees, the temple also attracts tourists from all over the world who come to marvel at the impeccable shrines. Most importantly, this temple serves as a message of growing tolerance toward religion while promoting peace and harmony across all faiths.
Some of the deities found at the Loyang Tua Pek Kong Temple include Da Bo Gong, Lord Yama of Hades. It’s also known for its 2-meter-high statue of Ganesha, which is believed to be the largest of its kind in Singapore.
