Hock Teck See or Fook Tet Soo Hakka Temple

Fook Tet Soo Hakka Temple (or Hock Teck See Temple) is more commonly known as 'Wang Hai Da Bo Gong' (Sea Facing Da Bo Gong/Tua Pek Kong), due to its close proximity to the sea, before land reclamation pushed the coastline further away.
Based on the steles in the temple, Fook Tet Soo Hakka Temple was built in 1844 and renovated in 1860, and were funded by Hakka clan Ying Fo Fui Kun, Hakka clan Fong Yun Thai Association and their clansmen. The 2 Hakka clans jointly manage the temple, and were responsible for the addition of the east wing in 1908. According to oral traditions maintained by the 2 Hakka clans, there was a Tua Pek Kong shrine at the same spot since 1819, which suggests that it might be the oldest Tua Pek Kong temple in Singapore.
This old temple has several ancient artifacts, such as a Yun Ban (bronze plate/gong) dated 1844, a bell dated 1909 and several plaque dated as early as 1865. An unique feature of this temple is the curly grass structure on the roof that was made from cockle shells. According to Dr Yeo Kang Shua, this unique feature cannot be found in any other temples in Singapore.
Fook Tet Soo's site was acquired by the government in 1982, and TOL (Temporary Occupation License) has been granted to Ying Fo Fui Kun and Fong Yun Thai Association on a monthly renewal basis. The two Hakka clan associations were also co-owner of the temple Fuk Tak Chi, which has been converted to a museum in 1998.
