Thian Hock Keng (literally "Palace of Heavenly Happiness"), also known as the Tianfu Temple, is a temple built for the worship of Mazu ("Ma Cho Po"), a Chinese sea goddess, located in Singapore. It is the oldest and most important temple of the Hokkien (Hoklo) people in the country. Another shrine at the back is Buddhist dedicated to Guanyin, the Mahayana Buddhist bodhisattva of mercy.
One of the tourist attraction in Singapore. Unfortunately, I can't take pictures in the premises. Can only show you the exterior of the temple that is in the heart of our busiest CBD area.

Thian Hock Keng means place of heavenly happiness, is one Singapore’s oldest Hokkien temple, and most important temple Hokkien temple. Located in Telok Ayer, just a few hundred meters walk from Telok Ayer MRT, and right next to The Musical Box museum. It started as a little shrine just in front of the shoreline to give thanks to Mazu (妈祖), Goddess of Seas, for their safe voyage. And as the number of the Chinese immigrant increased in years, so it was decided that permanent temple should be build to replace the shrine. So the construction began in 1839 and was completed three years later. This is really an astonishing temple, it is beautiful, and also a haven of tranquillity. Dominated by black for its interior and exterior, is different from any other Buddist temple I’ve seen where red is the dominant color. If you ever come close to this area, or if you’re interest in oriental style or design, you might want to consider to make stop to visit Thian Hock Keng.
This the mural on the wall of the temple compound. It is situated at the rear , outside the temple. Often missed by visitors. Worth a look of a bigone Singapore.
There's a mural outside that people seem to like. No entrance fee, but they encourage you to donate. Take note that you can't take photos of the main altar. You are only allowed to take photos of the vicinity and the building exterior. There are lots of shophouses in the area. You can eat or grab a drink after visiting the temple.
In the heart of CBD lies this Chinese temple built by the settlers who arrived into Singapore by sea. This is the oldest temple in Singapore and a nice one to visit.
