The Ties that Bind


Visit two historical places of worship – Hong San See on Mohammed Sultan Road and Sri Thendayuthapani Temple on Tank Road – and gain a deeper understanding of how they instilled a sense of belonging amongst the early immigrants of Singapore. Learn more about the communities – the Hokkiens and the Chettiars – that built these houses of worship, how these monuments met both spiritual and social needs of the communities, and how they have also functioned as “community centres” over the years.

Note: Participants will be required to climb steps at Hong San See.

Monuments covered: Hong San See and Sri Thendayuthapani Temple

Starting point: Foot of Hong San See (29 Mohamed Sultan Rd; carpark)
