Thian Hock Keng Temple

The Thian Hock Keng Temple is one of Singapore’s most important Hokkien temples. Located on what used to be the shoreline (before the land reclamation work began in the 1880s), it was a must-stop destination to thousands of Chinese immigrants in the past.

It was built using southern Chinese aspects and was dedicated to ‘Mazu’ who was known by Taoists as the protector of seamen in their voyages ever since 1821.
