천부 사원은 마 조사를 모시는 곳으로 싱가포르의 중국인은 주로 차 오산과 호키엔이기 때문에 이곳에는 신자가 많고 향이 번성하고 있습니다. 이 Tianfu Palace는 비교적 작으며 그 절묘함은 푸젠 남부의 사원과 비교할 수 없습니다.더 보기
Given Singapore's maritime influence, it is understandable that the Thian Hock Keng temple was an important place of worship for Hokien immigrants as they gave thanks to the Goddess of the Sea. This is one of Singapore's oldest chinese temples and is a typical South Chinese architectural building. It's amazing to note that it was built without the use of nails.
Thian Hock Keng temple is one of the oldest Chinese temples and most important Hokkien temple in Singapore. It was completed in 1842 and was where seamen went to give thanks to the deity Ma Zu (Goddess of the Sea) for their safe journey upon their arrival in Singapore. The temple was built in traditional southern Chinese architectural style and without a single nail. In 2001, it won the UNESCO Asia-Pacific Heritage Awards for Culture Heritage Conservation Building. As the location of the temple was once the seashore, and the first place merchants set foot on land, many temples were built along this stretch. Walk along the road and you will find a Muslim mosque, Indian-Muslim shrine as well as another 2 Chinese temples, one of them converted into a museum.
One of the oldest temple in Singapore, in the early days for immigrants to give thanks when they make their way safely from Fujian, China. The structure is constructed without using any nails. Truly a place to be to understand more of the culture and 'function' of different gods.
Modest Chinese temple that is worth a quick visit if you have to be passing by.
