Stop At: Lian Shan Shuang Lin Temple, 184E Jalan Toa Payoh Siang Lim Sian LI Buddhist Temple, Singapore 319941 Singapore

This tour takes us to the very heartland of Singapore, to two of its oldest places of worship - Shuang Lin Cheng Huang Temple, a Taoist temple, and Lian Shan Shuang Lin Monastery, a Buddhist monastery.

.

Shuang Lin Cheng Huang Temple was built in 1903 at a cost of 3,000 Straits dollars. Today, this temple is frequented by devotees from all over the island. They come to offer prayers to any or every of the countless gods and goddesses venerated inside; among the more famous ones are Tua Pek Kong, the God of Wealth, Mazu, Madam Golden Flower, and Justice Bao.

.

We will learn the stories behind some of these deities, as well as Taoist beliefs and culture in general.

.

Lian Shan Shuang Lin Monastery, on the other hand, is the oldest Buddhist monastery in Singapore. Founded 120 years ago, this national monument remains today one of the finest Buddhist structures in Singapore in terms of architecture and conservation.

.

During its construction, craftsmen and materials were transported from China to Singapore, thus ensuring that Chinese construction techniques and materials were used. In the 1990s, the temple was extensively restored at a cost of about S$40 million.

.

Listen to the mystical origins of the monastery, learn about the profound teachings of Mahayana Buddhism, and appreciate the richness of a 2,000-year-old Chinese monastic culture in this unique and insightful tour.
