Foo Hai Chan Monastery
福海禅寺

  Introduction
Foo Hai Chan Monastery is a Mahayana Buddhist temple founded in 1935 by Venerable Hong Zong, who was born in Taiwan, ordained in Japan and came to Singapore to propagate Buddhism. The temple was rebuilt into a Southern Chinese styled temple in 1964 and subsequently into a Tang Dynasty styled temple in 2004. It has a pair of Heng Ha Dharma Protectors at the main gate of Foo Hai Chan, which serve to protect the monastery. They originated from the Sanskrit word Guhyapada, which refers to a prince that became leader of 500 Vajra Protectors. Initially there was just one Dharma protector per monastery, but the Chinese are not used to "odd" number and so they have a pair, similar to Door Gods in Taoist and Chinese Folk Religion temples. In the main hall of the monastery are two intricately crafted statues - one is a 9.9 metres tall Thousand-hands Guanyin and the other is a 3.3 metres tall Buddha.
During the 2004's rebuild a pagoda was constructed for the Siddhartha centre (formerly known as Siddhartha Temple), which donated 6 million dollars to Foo Hai Chan Monastery and officially moved into the monastery in October 2004. The Siddhartha Centre was founded in 1954 by the late Master Wong Foo Siong in the Hainanese village at 44 Lincoln Road and was relocated to 19 Lincoln Road in 1977, in an area known colloquially as "Red Bridge Head".


弘宗法师是福海禅寺的创办人,他出生于台湾,受戒于日本,旋南来新加坡布教。福海禅寺是一间大乘佛教寺,于1935年始创,1964年重建成南方式寺院,2004年再重建为富有唐代风格,禅香古味的寺庙。山门前有一双金刚,称为哼哈二将,在华人佛教寺很普遍,就像民间信仰庙宇的门神。走进大殿可以看到九点九米高的千手千眼观音菩萨立像,及三点三米高的释迦牟尼佛坐像,非常壮观。
盘古圣皇佛堂于2004年十月迁入福海禅寺大殿旁的宝塔,之前捐赠六百万新元。盘古圣皇佛堂创立于1953年,由王普昌发起,原址在林肯路的海南村,俗称“红桥头”。
