Qi Tian Gong Temple
Qi Tian Gong Temple is dedicated to the Monkey God and was founded in 1920 in a small attap hut located within a taro garden just across Eng Hoon Street. It moved to its current location in 1938. This temple is in its most splendour on the first and eighth lunar months bustling with festivities in celebration of the Deity's birthday.

Tiong Bahru Air Raid Shelter
This air raid shelter is the last remaining pre-war civilian air raid shelter still in existence today. Once the air raid siren sounded, the entrance to the shelter would open for the residents. It could accommodate up to an estimated 1,600 persons. Today, the air raid shelter is full of educational panels for visitors, as well as occasional free exhibitions.
