Wishing Bells in Thian Hock Keng Temple

Why You Need To Visit

  • Heritage and Culture Abound

    Thian Hock Keng, which means “Temple of Heavenly Happiness” dates all the way back to the 1800s. It is dedicated to Mazu, a Chinese sea goddess, and remains an important place of worship to this day.

  • An Architectural Marvel

    Take in the remarkable traditional southern Chinese style architecture at this national monument filled with meticulous craftsmanship. Keep an eye for the detailed carvings and sculptures of dragons, phoenixes and deities, as well as the colourful broken porcelain on the roof ridges, a Fujian decorating technique. 

  • A Thread In A Rich Religious Tapestry

    Located just around the corner from multiple places of worship like the Al-Abrar Mosque and Telok Ayer Chinese Methodist Church, Thian Hock Keng is a living symbol of Singapore's diverse tapestry of religious beliefs.
