Po Chiak Keng
保赤宫

  Introduction
Po Chiak Keng (bao chi gong), also known as Tan Si Chong Su (chen shi zong ci), was founded as an ancestral temple for Tan clansmen from Fujian, China . In later years clansmen of Hu, Yao, Yuan, Tian, Sun, Lu and Yu were also admitted because they share the same ancestor as Tan, which was Emperor Shun.
A stele was erected in 1878 to commemorate the founding of the temple, which lists Tan Kim Ching and Tan Beng Swee as directors, Tan Tye and Tan Kim Tian as deputy directors. Besides the directors, prominent donors include Tan Quee Lan and Tan Keong Saik.
In 1883 two new wings were added to Po Chiak Keng, and the donors include Tan Kim Tian and Tan Quee Lan. Between 1889 and 1962 Po Chiak School occupied the 2 new wings.
Po Chiak Keng was renovated in 1926, 1966 and 2004. In the 1926 renovation Tan Kah Kee, Tan Boo Liat, Tan Soo Bee and Tan Lark Sye were among the donors, and Tan Ean Kiam was leading the temple.
There is a bell in the temple that was made in England in 1880, believed to be the oldest bell in a Singapore temple.
Tan Po Chiak Keng is one of the few temples that is opened 24 hours for prayer. The others are Chong Ghee Temple, Jurong Hong San See, Sembawang God of Wealth Temple and Loyang Tua Pek Kong Temple

Tan Kim Ching, the eldest son of Tan Tock Seng, was the Kapitan China of the Straits Chinese community. His tomb can be found in Bukit Brown Cemetery. Tan Beng Swee, son of Tan Kim Seng, served as Justice of Peace. He was buried in Malacca.

保赤宫,也称为陈氏宗祠,是为团结福建陈氏宗亲而创的宗祠,堂号颍川堂。后来姚、虞、胡、袁、田、孙、陆等姓也加入保赤宫,因为这7个姓和陈姓一样都是舜帝的后代。根据宫内的石碑,保赤宫创立于光绪四年(1878年),首届大董事是陈金钟与陈明水,副懂事是陈金殿与陈泰。除了懂事们,显要的创宫捐款者包括陈桂兰与陈恭锡,两人也在光绪九年(1883)资助护厝的增设。护厝在1883至1962年之间做为保赤学校的校舍。
保赤宫过后于1926年,1966年与2004年重修。1926年重修时期由陈廷谦当正总理,义捐者包括陈嘉庚,陈武烈,陈四美与陈六使。
宫内有一口光绪六年在英国制造的铜钟,算是新加坡庙宇中最古老的。
陈金钟,陈笃生之子,是当年的华社领袖。他的坟墓在武吉布朗坟山(俗称咖啡山)。陈明水,陈金声之子,当任过太平紳士。
保赤宫是少数开放24小时让信徒上香的庙。另外几间是万兴山崇义庙, 裕廊凤山寺, 三巴旺财神庙 and 洛陽大伯公宫
