Built between 1908 and 1913, the Hong San See temple, located along Mohamed Sultan Road, was originally located at Tras Street in Tanjong Pagar in 1829. Established by the Hokkien people of the Lam Ann clan, this temple is dedicated to Guang Ze Zun Wang, the God of Fortune. It later relocated to Mohamed Sultan road, and the temple now draws worshippers from different dialect groups.

Having lived in Hong Kong and traveled extensively in Asia I have visited more than a few Chinese temples and whilst in Singapore I thought I'd take a look at Hong San See. Erected by migrants from Fujian province of China over 100 years ago and dedicated as a National monument in 1978 Hong San See is a nice enough... More

We have visited this little temple while we walked around the river. It is high above the street level and you need to climb few steps to enter. Looks similar to many other Chinese temples but still very pretty and peaceful as we were the only people there at the time.

This is the place for a quiet prayer. The temple is rather small but the design is more intricate than other temples. There are hardly any visitors so I guess it is more for locals.

I was driving my way along River Valley Road to the Buddhist Lodge at Kim Yam Road when I noticed the road signboard indicating this temple. While my mother was busy praying at the Buddhist Lodge, I walked to this temple to have a look. It was about 10 minute's walk to this temple from the Buddhist Lodge. It is... More

I've been walking past this temple on many occasions over the years but have never actually ventured inside until today. It's a pretty structure with a commanding view right in the centre of Mohamed Sultan road. On a weekday the place is almost empty except for the temple keeper. Worth a look when you're in the vicinity.

This place is beautiful, the architecture is just magnificent, place is open daily, closes exactly by 5pm. Buy your joss sticks from the temple keeper and pray. If not interested, you are welcomed to take photos, do not use flash or tripod though. Feel free to walk around. Look out for the displays about the renovations and history of the... More
