Leong San See Temple
Also known as Dragon Mountain Temple
What we say:
Despite its location in Little India, this is a Chinese Taoist temple and was established in 1913 by a monk who travelled to Singapore with little more than a statue of Kuan Im (the Goddess of Mercy).
The temple was originally dedicated to her, but an altar to Confucius was added during renovations and people come to pray their children will adopt Confucian values like intelligence and obedience. The temple's name translates to "Dragon Mountain Temple" and if you look at the roof and gate you'll see carvings of dancing dragons, winged humans and other fantastic creatures.
