  • I don't know how to review a temple. It's rather small, but it's beautiful and the design is very intricate. It's very calming.

  • Hong San See (Chinese: 凤山寺; pinyin: Fèngshān sì; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Hōng-suann-sī) is a Chinese temple in Singapore, and is located at Mohamed Sultan Road in the River Valley Planning Area, within the Central Area. Hong San See Temple was constructed between 1908 and 1913, erected by migrants from Nan An County in Fujian province with materials imported from China. One of the builders was Neo Jin Quee (Chinese: 梁壬癸; pinyin: Liáng Rénguǐ), an early Chinese pioneer and leader from Nan An County. Built on a small hill, the temple once overlooked the sea. The temple's vicinity now mainly houses bars, restaurants and expensive apartments. Singapore Lam Ann Association manages the temple. The original temple to Guangze Zunwang (广泽尊王) was built in 1836 on Mount Wallich in Tanjong Pagar, and was erected by migrants from Nan An county in Fujian province of China. In 1907, the land was acquired by the government for reclaiming Telok Ayer Bay and the temple trustees were given compensationof $50,000. The temple trustees used the money to buy land on a 999-year lease on Mohamed Sultan Road from Sam Tomlimsonwho was the Municipal Engineer.
