What we say: 3.5 stars

Meaning "The Temple of the Calm Sea", the temple was founded by Teochew Chinese immigrants, who tended to work as sailors or fishermen, as a place to give offerings to the water spirits. The temple is known for its elaborate roof carvings, the only such temple in Singapore, and as a place to make offerings of joss paper or "ghost money" to appease angry spirits.
