Chinese Mysticism in a Hipster Enclave
The Monkey God Temple (Qi Tian Gong) in Tiong Bahru dates from 1920 and is a reminder of the ethnic Chinese soul of this neighborhood, which has recently undergone somewhat of a transformation. When you visit this temple you breathe in the vibrant history and living traditions of the community and momentarily forget that three new coffee shops have just popped up around the corner.
