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.

Thian Hock Keng Temple reviews
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? more »

This so go good and peaceful just on my sunny day. Amazing in some old way.
This was included in the half day Singapore tour and it was very interesting to understand and hear the background of this temple and what the 3 god's or goddesses in this temple signify. I enjoyed seeing this temple, feeling the serenity, really worth it.
