Wak Hai Cheng Bio, 1820

Of all the Teochew temples in Singapore and Malaysia, this temple is most unique in terms of layout and roof ornamentation.

This temple was modelled after a similar temple in Swatow which had two temples built side by side. On the right temple lies the 'King of Heaven" while on the left is the 'Goddess of the Sea'. However, if we were to face our back towards the temple, the 'King' would be on the left while Mazu would the right.
