  Introduction
Fu Hup Thong Fook Tak Kung (yu xia tang fu de ci) is a Cantonese temple dedicated to Tu Di Gong and his wife Tu Di Po. Tu Di Gong means Earth God in Chinese, whose official title is Fu De Zheng Shen, and he is more commonly known in Singapore as Tua Pek Kong. The pair of Tu Di Gong and Tu Di Po in this temple used to be worshipped in the home of a rich family at Toa Payoh Rise (near to former Toa Payoh Hospital) but were later discarded. The statues of Tu Di Gong and Tu Di Po were found under a tree and later worshipped in a home near Tai Gin Road. The deities became very popular with the Cantonese living in the Toa Payoh and Whampoa areas, and two parties were fighting over the right to worship them. Through mediation they agreed to decide through the tossing of divination blocks, and the outcome was in favour of Fuk Tuck Chee's founders, who went on to establish Fuk Tuck Chee in the early 1940s. The other party established Fu Hup Thong Fook Tak Kung in the early 1940s by taking the "Joss Ash" from Fuk Tuck Chee and made a replica of the Tu Di Gong and Tu Di Po using the soil found in Kim Keat Link, in a village known as Yu Xia Tang, literally means Taro Garden. At the beginning the deities were worshipped in the car park of a school at Balestier Road and later they were moved to the upper floor of a Chinese medical hall. In 1953 Fu Hup Thong Fook Tak Kung raised enough money to purchase the current site to build a permanent home for Tu Di Gong and Tu Di Po.


芋峡塘福德宫主奉土地公(福德正神,广东人的大伯公)与夫人土地婆。据庙管理人所述,土地公婆原本供奉于大巴窑坡附近的一户富贵人家里,后来被遗弃。有人在树下找到土地公婆,便将他们供奉于乌桥附近的家中。土地公婆多次显灵,很受欢迎,有两组人想供奉他们,因此引起了争执。大约在1940初,大家同意定用掷筊来决定,山竹园福德祠掷出圣杯,于是将土地公婆请到文德路山竹园供奉。另外一组人成立了芋峡塘福德宫,用芋峡塘(金吉连路)的泥土来塑造土地公婆金身。起初神灵供奉于马里士他路一间学校的停车房内,后来迁往万兴和药材店楼上,1953年购买现址建立永久庙宇。
