The sacred Taoist temple Siang Cho Keong Temple, formerly known as Zhi Yun Miao, was established in 1867 and reached completion after two years. The humble sanctuary was built on its chosen site because it is resembled good feng shui, with a sea in front and a hill behind this holy structure, and has stood on the same location till date. Several idols have been installed in this religious abode, including the presiding deity, Tua Pek Kong, the God of prosperity. Apart from that, the idols of Lu Fu Xian Zu, one of the Eight Immortals in Chinese mythology, Guanyin, Jin Qian Bo, Wen Guan and Wu Jiang are also present here among others.
Sitting in a quiet corner of Amory Lane, the Siang Cho Keong Temple is usually overlooked by many since it does not draw a lot of attention as, compared to the other Chinese temples in Singapore. However, it is clear that you will be missing out on one of the most underrated temples if you decide to leave this out from your 'places to visit in Singapore' list. This place of worship receives visitors on a daily basis. However, it is the liveliest in the afternoons, when people come in to offer their prayers and light incense sticks to express their devotion to the deities.
