Oldest Tao temple in Singapore


Oldest Tao temple in Singapore

Yueh Hai Ching Temple, also known as Wak Hai Cheng Bio (translated as Temple of the Calm Sea), is a Chinese temple in the Financial District in Singapore. We were amazed by its court with hundreds of burning large incense coils, huge red terracota ovens in which offerings to gods and ancestors are burnt to ask them for help and honour them. Splendid decoration and yet the surroundings of this temple of dignity is totally different, high, strict and correct Financial District. What a contrast! We have loved these huge incense coils, it was the first time we have seen them. Just learned that it closed for restoration since February 2011.
