Beo San Hood Chor Temple
祖佛海南山庙

  Introduction
In the 1920s Beo San Hood Chor Temple received "Joss Ash" from its mother temple Shi Miao Shan, located in Xi Pu Zheng, Dong Shan Xian, Fujian. Singapore devotees funded the renovation of the mother temple in 1955, 1980 and 1993.
The keeper of Beo San Hood Chor Temple considers themselves a Hokkien temple, but interestingly they conduct the "Leaving the Garden" ritual for teenagers, a Teochew tradition to signify the crossover from childhood to adulthood. The temple also worship an uncommon Teochew deity known as Qiao Jun, who is the third brother of the Three Mountain Emperors.

San Shan Guo Wang

San Shan Guo Wang, literally means Three Mountain Emperors, refer to the gods of the three mountains located in Jiexi, Jieyang, Guangdong. They were sworn brothers who had made significant contributions in defending the country and were honoured by Ming Dynasty emperor Song Tai Zong. The eldest brother is Lian Jie, god of Jinshan, the second brother is Zhao Xuan, god of Minshan and the third brother is Qiao Jun, god of Dushan. The third brother made the largest contribution and is considered the leader. Veneration of San Shan Guo Wang (and their wives) is very popular in the Teochew (Chaoshan) region of China, and has since spread to other parts of China and outside of China. Besides Beo San Hood Chor Temple, veneration of San Shan Guo Wang can also be found at Kueh's Temple.


庙山南海佛祖庙,也称福山堂,大约在1920年代从福建省东山县西埔镇的石庙山 (俗称庙山)分灵,供奉的三王爷是三山国王的独山之神乔俊。新加坡信徒曾在1955年,1980年及1993年为祖庙捐资修建。
福山堂是少数为香客子孙举行“出花园”仪式的庙宇。“出花园”是潮州人的一种成人礼,当孩子行过礼后就算是告别孩童时代(走出花园),宣告成年。

三山国王

三山国王指的是揭阳市揭西县河婆镇三座山的三位山神,老大是巾山之神连杰,老二是明山之神赵轩,老三是独山之神乔俊。三位烈士因护国有功,明朝受宋太宗诰封为王,其中老三的功劳最大,是三位国王之首。三山国王在潮汕地区信奉的诸多神祇中影响最为深广,祖庙是河婆镇的霖田祖庙。三山国王(与夫人)的香火随着潮汕人散居而传到邻近省市,后又传播海外。在新加坡,除了庙山南海佛祖庙之外还有郭氏古庙保存这信仰。
