About Hong San See Temple, Singapore
Located on a small hill, the magnificent Chinese temple - Hong San See Temple was built in the year 1913. Its sloping tiled roofs and ornamented columns are that of the southern Chinese in style, while the gilded woodcarvings adorning the inner doors are particularly impressive. In the main hall there is an altar dedicated to patron deity Guangze Zunwang, and secondary altars to Chenghuang (also known as the City God), Xuantian Shangdi and Guanyin (the Goddess of Mercy). The verses embedded on the rear columns are by the late Chinese poet and a great calligrapher named Pan Shou.
