Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple

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.
