Hougang Tou Mu Kung

The history of Hougang Tou Mu Kung (hou gang dou mu gong) can be traced to 1902, when Mr Ong Choo Kee of Fujian Nan'an ancestry brought the 'Joss Ash' of Nine Emperor Gods from Penang to Hougang 4th milestone, which soon became popular among the villagers. In 1921, the temple moved into Hougang Tou Mu Kung at Hougang 5th milestone (current location), which was built by pineapple businessman Ong Chwee Tow (or Ong Chwee Taw) of Fujian Zhao'an Dongshan ancestry (Dongshan separated from Zhao'an in 1916 to become an independant county). Ong Chwee Tow also contributed to the renovations of Soon Thian Keing and Goh Chor Tua Pek Kong Temple, as well as the building of the Malay Kramat (Keramat) and Tua Pek Kong Temple on Kusu Island. He passed away in 1924 and was buried in Seh Ong Cemetery (Bukit Brown Cemetery).
Hougang Tou Mu Kung is the first temple in Singapore to worship Nine Emperor Gods, and was gazetted as a national monument in 2005.
