  Introduction
Shuang Lin Cheng Huang Miao (Siong Lim Temple) is part of Lian Shan Shuang Lin Monastery, a national monument gazetted in 1980. Based on the stele outside Shuang Lin Cheng Huang Miao, the temple was built in 1903, with 3000 dollars contributed by Ban San Low Kim Pong, whereby Low Kim Pong was the founder of the temple and (Chop) Ban San (Chan) was the name of his firm. Low Kim Pong came from Nanjing, Zhangzhou, Fujian in 1858 and started a Chinese medicine business known as Chop Ban San Chan and a Chinese bank known as Chop Hock Lam. He was a devout Buddhist and funded the building of Lian Shan Shuang Lin Monastery from 1898 to 1907. He passed away in 1909 and was buried at Shunfu Road's Hai Lam Sua (cemetery), which was exhumed in 1982.
Low Kim Pong also made other charitable contributions, including the building of Siang Cho Keong and rebuilding of Soon Thian Keing. Kim Pong Road in Tiong Bahru was named after him to honour his contributions .
Another famous pioneer that had funded the construction of Siong Lim temple was Khoo Seok Wan , who was known for his literary works. He was born in Zhangzhou, Fujian, and inherited a fortune from this father rice business.

双林城隍庙是《莲山双林寺》里的一间道教庙宇。根据庙外的石碑,双林城隍庙原为广福宫,创立于光绪弍拾玖年(1903年)。碑文提到刘金榜以《万山刘金榜》捐了3000元。刘金榜,字文超,1837生于福建省漳州南靖县,1858年南来新加坡,创立《万山栈/万山号》中药铺,后开设《福南银号》,因此致富。他热心向佛,从1898到1907年出钱兴建《莲山双林》。刘金榜卒于1909年12月18日,享年72岁,辞世后葬于顺福路海南山。他为社会做了许多贡献,包括捐款资助紫云庙(仙祖宫)的建设及Soon Thian Keing的重建。中峇鲁的金榜路就是以他命名。
另一位知名的先贤是邱菽园,雅号《星洲才子》,是新加坡早期杰出的文化名人。邱菽园原籍福建漳州海澄县,1941年去世后埋葬在武吉布朗坟山(也称为咖啡山),父亲是著名米商邱正忠。
