Berlin Heiligtum / German Girl Shrine
德国姑娘/拿督姑娘庙

  Introduction
Berlin Heiligtum, more commonly known as German Girl Shrine, was founded during (or shortly after) World War 1 (1914 to 1918) on a hill in Pulau Ubin, which is an island North East of Singapore. The German girl, believed to be born in 1896, was the daughter of a coffee plantation owner. During World War I, the British soldiers rounded up German people living in Singapore and confiscated their assets, and the coffee plantation owner and his family were no exception. The German girl was trying to escape but unfortunately fell off the cliff of a hill and died, and her body was buried by some Boynanese plantation workers. The Chinese villagers who prayed to her got their wishes fulfilled and as she became popular a shrine was built on a hill to honour her, together with a urn containing her hair, a cross and a few Victorian coins.
In the 1970s German Girl Shrine moved downhill to the current location, known colloquially as the foot of 'Coffee Hill'. It is painted in yellow (holy colour of Malay) but has features that remind us of Chinese temple, such as a pair of lanterns, bronze censers for Jade Emperor and main deity, moon blocks, joss stick, joss paper burner, oil lamp, donation box, altars, medium's table and chair.
On the main altar is a barbie doll to represent the German Girl and a host of things one would find on a girl's dressing table (lipstick, nail polish, perfume, powder, hair spray, brush, face cream, necklace, flower, etc). Below the main altar is a stone that came from the spot where her corpse was found, which has been kept to remember her.


柏林苑,俗称拿督姑娘庙,始创于第一次世界大战期间(1914年至1918年)乌敏岛的一个山丘上。这位出生于1896年的德国女孩是一个咖啡种植园主的女儿。第一次世界大战期间,英国士兵围捕居住在新加坡的德国人,而咖啡种植园的老板和他的家人也不例外。德国女孩试图逃跑,但不幸摔下悬崖而死亡。一些马来种植园工人发现了她的尸体后就将她埋葬,还向她祈祷。华人村民也跟着向她祈祷,后来在一座小山上为她建一间小庙,并安置了一个装了她头发,十字架和一些维多利亚硬币瓮的骨灰盒。
在20世纪70年代拿督姑娘庙被迁移到俗称'咖啡山'脚下。整间庙是以黄色为主(马来神圣的颜色),但有一些华人寺庙的特色,如一双传统灯笼,天公和主神的青铜香炉,筊杯,金炉,油灯,添油箱,祭坛,乩童的桌子和椅子。庙里的主神坛看起来像一个女孩的梳妆台,有口红,指甲油,香水,脂粉,面霜,项链和花,而神坛上的芭比娃娃就是拿督姑娘的金身。主神坛下面有一块石头,来至发现她尸体的地方,是用来记念她。
