What we say: 3.5 stars

Many consider this the oldest Chinese temple in Singapore as a simple temple has stood here since 1821.

The temple that stands today though was built a few decades later and is a masterpiece of stone columns, wooden carvings and tile mosaics and even more impressive when you learn it was built in the traditional south Chinese style, without any nails.

Visit on an auspicious day (see the calendar on their website) for the full experience.
