Thian Hock Keng is one of Singapore's oldest and most prestigious Hokkien temples. Singapore Hokkien Huay Kuan manages Thian Hock Keng, and he was gazetted as a national monument in 1973. The temple construction signified the transformation of an immigrant society to one that planted its roots and was also deemed the religious centre for the Chinese community at that time. It is a rare temple that encompasses Taoism, Buddhism, Confucianism and Ancestral Worship. Thian Hock Keng was built in the traditional southern Fujian architectural style. The temple has a masterpiece of stone, dragons and phoenixes, tiles and wood, unique carvings, imposing columns and intricate sculptures. The temple attracts devotees of different dialect groups and is especially crowded during birthday celebrations of deities.

THIAN HOCK KENG REVIEWS
I came to this temple just on a holiday, so I couldn't go inside to visit, but from the visible appearance, I feel that its architectural style is super similar to the temples in Taiwan. It has an indescribable intimacy, meticulous carvings, and the same dragon. Stone pillars, ancient gates.
Thian Hock Keng Temple is a place to worship the goddess who protects fishermen at sea. In Singapore, there are many places of worship built in many nooks and crannies. And among them the most famous temple.
A place with a lot of history and beautiful internal and external architecture. There is enough information to know the background of Buddhism. Admission is free and you always have to enter with a lot of respect and admiration.

COMPASSION LIFE SOCIETY REVIEWS
Came here to make offerings to the Buddhas, provided donations for the various temple causes and took home a few books about Buddhism. Volunteers here are very friendly and willing to guide me as it was my first time. Really thankful and recommended.
I am very impressed with the volunteers who protect the Dharma of the Association. I have witnessed the selfless dedication of a group of volunteers and Bodhisattvas. They bring love to the nursing home, release life, and many corners that need them. It is worthy of the Compassionate Life Association that there is a pure land on earth.
I rejoice and admire the boundless merits. I hope that there will be such a loving group in every corner of the world. I hope that the world can coexist peacefully and coexist without struggle. The world is full of great love. It is the so-called "world of love". What a wonderful thing to do~ Namo Amitabha.
