Something to share in every single week throughout the year

Week 18 – Leong San Temple

Located at 371 Race Course Road, Singapore. It is between walking distance from both Little India or Farrer Park MRT station. It is located just opposite to the Temple of 1000 Lights.
It is a Taoist Temple, built in 1917. The founders of the temple came from Fujian province in China in 1913 and they brought with them some of the statues on the roof as well as a statue of Kwan Yin, the Goddess of Compassion. A shrine for the four-faced Buddha, as Phra Phrom or Brahma is called in Singapore, is located in the open courtyard of the temple.

By the time I visited the temple it was closed. So, I would suggest people visiting the place earlier if you are interested on it or if you have extra days to spend in Singapore, and while you are visiting the area, it is good to visit the other two temples nearby as well. They are the Temple of 1000 Lights which is just located opposite to the Leong San Temple and the Sri Srinivasa Perumal Hindu Temple which is located on the main street at the direction towards Farrer Park MRT station.
