Tampines Soon Hin Ko Beo

Soon Hin Ko Beo (Shun Xing Gu Miao) was founded in 1851 or earlier, based on the date of a plaque presented by a Teochew from Raoping county of Chaozhou. It started as an attap hut, and was rebuilt into a brick house in 1924, together with a opera stage. Soon Hin Ko Beo is the oldest temple in Tampines and is believed to be the first temple in the world to worship Hong Xian Da Di. Devotees prayed to Hong Xian Da Di for protection from tigers, which was a real threat to human lives in the old days.
According to legend, there was a righteous man who went up the hill to get timber and came face to face with a tiger. Instead of running, he knelt down to beg for life, and promised to buy a piece of meat for the tiger. The tiger agreed, and followed him to the foot of the hill, where it waited for him to buy the meat. While waiting, the tiger was spotted by other people and they started to attack the tiger, causing injury to one of its legs. The righteous man who went to buy meat returned to find the tiger missing. He decided to go deep into the woods with the meat to find the tiger, so that he can fulfilled his promise. Years later villagers in Tampines kept seeing a man riding on a 3-legged tiger (one leg was injured the attack earlier) and called himself Hong Xian Da Di, and claimed that he could control the tiger situation.
