A world of heritage awaits your exploration at Far East Square.
Visit Singapore’s first street museum – The Fuk Tak Chi Museum lovingly restored by craftsmen from China and Malaysia, specially brought in to recreate the spirit of that era.
Built in 1824 by the Hakka and Cantonese immigrants five years after the founding of the modern city in 1819, this Singapore’s oldest temple was dedicated to Tua Pek Kong catering to the religious needs of both the Confucianists and Taoists.
In August 1998, the building was restored and converted into a museum featuring rich Chinese history and culture with artifacts on the lives of early Chinese migrants in Singapore.
Stop here for an up-close look at over 200 artifacts donated by residents in Chinatown, which will give you a glimpse into the way of life of the early immigrants.
