敬謝 Token of thanks 


There is a  Guang Xiao Shan Tua Pek Gong temple there.  In the early days, it was known as Lin Shan Miu. - 麟山廟 (Unicorn Mountain Temple)

In a book published in 1958 on Chinese Temples in Singapore„ Dr Leon Comber, mentioned about this Unicorn Mountain Temple.

From the book:

This small shrine is also known as the Fuk Tak Miao or Toh Pek Kong Temple. The main deity, as implied in the name, is the Grand Old Man, Toh Pek Kong.
But it is looked after by a poor old man, who lives with his dog in wretched hut in front of the small stone building housing the shrine.

I have included it as a typical example of a guardian temple for a Chinese cemetery.
The cemetery, which lies on the slope of the hill stretching behind, is the Kuang Hsiao Shan. It is one of the many Chinese burial grounds in the rural areas owned by the Ngee Ann Kongsi, a Teochew association. The temple itself is said to be about ten years old. A Chinese wayang and market are held here on festive days connected with the deity.
