The Loyang Tua Pek Kong is a multi-religious temple in Singapore, hosting three varied religions under a single roof - Hinduism, Buddhist and Taoism. En route Changi Village, this all-faith temple even has a shrine dedicated to Datuk Kung, a Malay mystic saint. Epitomizing the cosmopolitan soul of Singapore, Loyang Tua Pek Kong houses a 2-metre tall statue of Lord Ganesh, believed to the tallest in the country. Marvel at the intricate wooden carvings and hundreds of dazzling sculptures of different deities.
The beautiful temple owes its existence to a bunch of friends who stumbled across statues of different faiths on a beach and decided to bring the figurines together. They placed them under a small hut they made of bricks and zinc sheets resulting in the mixed-religion Loyang Tua Pek Kong temple. The devotees to the shrine attribute miraculous powers to the temple and claim that their prayers for wealth and prosperity are always answered. Loyang Tua Pek Kong commemorates annual celebrations with various festivals like Chinese New Year, the birth of Lord Ganesha and the 5th day of the 8th month of the lunar calendar. It also holds special holy services like Deity Sendoff service, Eye-opening service and Empowerment of Command flag.
