Thian Hock Keng Temple
The Thian Hock Keng Temple in Singapore is the oldest Chinese temple in the area. Founded in 1842 by a group of Chinese craftsmen, the local Hokkien community recognizes this temple as the most important one in their culture. During its earliest times, this ancient temple was a well-known prayer house situated on the shoreline of the Telok Ayer Basin. The temple eventually transformed into the Thian Hock Keng Temple (“Temple of Heavenly Happiness”). Many tourists come to this historic temple each year to take part in the celebration of Ma Cho Po.
