  • Very small so it's only a very brief visit. So it's only worth the effort if you happen to be nearby.  more »
  • This former temple is now a shortcut between Telok Ayer street and Far East Square. There's not too much to see inside but it makes for a much more interesting route than following the main pedestrian...  more »

  • According to the plaque at the entrance, this temple is one of the oldest around since the 1820s. The temple, founded by the Hakka and Cantonese immigrants, served as a place of worship and a social meeting place for the two communities. The temple was closed in 1994 and has since been converted into a museum. Inside, you can find a diorama depicting a street scene outside the temple with the early immigrants going about their daily life. If you are wondering why there is a pier with boats docking along it, that is because this place used to be a coastal area. Much of Telok Ayer is built on reclaimed land. In fact, the name Telok Ayer actually means "Water Bay".
  • A quaint and small museum directly next to Amoy Hotel, of the early days of Chinese immigrants in Singapore. Not much to see, except that it offers a peek of how shophouses used to be back in the days.
  • You can see a model of the old temple. Quite interesting.
  • A small area with exhibits on the early Chinese Immigrants to Singapore.
  • A nice little place to pass by and take a few photos
