Singapore’s oldest Chinese temple-museum Fuk Tak Chi has reopened

Located in the heart of Telok Ayer, the 162 sqm building has undergone a makeover spearheaded by architectural firm DP Architects, following a major termite infestation. The 191 year-old temple-turned-museum, owned by Far East Organization, was once a site for Hakka and Cantonese migrants to give thanks for a safe journey to Singapore. Architectural buffs can now check out its restored decorative details like dragons and phoenixes, which are repaired and repainted by a team of Chinese craftsmen.

The museum houses over 200 donated artifacts documenting the life of early immigrants in Singapore, so if you’re still heady from the recent SG50 brouhaha, head here
