Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple
观音堂佛祖庙

  Introduction
Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple (guanyin tang fozu miao) is more commonly known as Shi Ma Lu Guanyin Temple or Waterloo Street Guanyin Temple. Based on the wall inscriptions, the temple's founder was 'Master Li Nan Shan', who hailed from Guangdong, China. In 1884 he received a piece of land from a firm known as 'Chen Liang Cheng', and built the temple betweem 1884 and 1886. The temple was refurbished in 1895 and rebuilt into the one we see today in 1984.

Master Li Nan Shan also founded Kuan Im Tng in Joo Chiat.

On the 1st and 15th day of each Lunar month, and on Guanyin's Birthday, Enlightenment Day and Reunciation Day, the temple will be overwhelmed with devotees. On the eve of Chinese New Year many devotees will queue up to enter the temple and be among the first to place their joss sticks on the censer. Devotess believe they will be blessed with good fortune for the rest of the year.

Most devotees pray with lighted joss sticks to seek blessings from Guanyin, while some offer fresh lotus flowers. Those seeking Guanyin advice will toss the "divinity sticks" to get one of the 100 Guanyin divinity lots, and the temple staff will help them to interpret the message.


观音堂佛祖庙(俗称四马路观音庙)是一间很受欢迎的观音堂,常年香火旺盛。每逢初一十五都会人潮汹涌,在观音的大日子及农历新年更是水泄不通。庙的入口处有许多售卖香烛,生果和鲜花的小摊子,还有一些售卖万字,大彩及多多彩票的人。
根据左墙的颂德碑记,来自广东的”南山上人“(李南山师祖)带头发起创庙,“陈两成”商号在清光绪十年(1884年)献地,再由众善男信女捐款建庙。从庙里的光绪丙戌年匾额可以推断四马路观音庙大概在1886年建成。墙上的碑记也提到观音堂曾在1895年重修,1984年重建。李南山师祖后来在如切创立《如切观音堂》。另外一间跟〈四马路观音庙〉有关联的庙宇是恭锡路的準提宫
