Tang Gah Beo
东岳庙

  Introduction
According to the temple caretaker, Tang Gah Beo (dong yue miao) was founded in the 19th century. However, there was no stele or any artifact to establish the fact, except for a Yun Ban (bronze plate/gong) dated 1959. According to the book 《寻庙 - 新加坡华人庙宇》, the founder was Master Biyu, who came from Kai Yuan Si Temple in Zhangzhou, Fujian, China.
The main god in this temple is East Peak Emperor or Dongyue Da Di. Dongyue is the ancient name for Mount Tai, one of the most "Five Great Mountains" in China. The Taoists regard East Peak Emperor as the highest ranking god responsible for Diyu (Chinese term for underworld or hell).
There is an interesting artefact in the main hall of Tang Gah Beo, a rare wooden plaque that uses 'Tian Yun' as Era Name, instead of the usual sovereign's era name or republic. According to this blog, Tian Yun was used by anti-Qing supporters during the Qing dynasty.


据庙祝所述,东岳庙是在十九世纪创立,但没有石碑或匾額证明。最古老的文物是一面 己亥年(1959年)的云板及一片匾額。据《寻庙 - 新加坡华人庙宇》所述,创庙人是福建漳州开元寺的碧玉法师。
东岳庙正殿中有一块立于1959年的匾額,是以罕见的天运为年号。星洲浪人的博客提到天运年号是在19世纪中期开始使用,当初是为了反清复明,但目前还有人在用。
泰山古称东岳,所以东岳大帝也称泰山神,是泰山的化身。东岳大帝掌管十殿阎王,是道教地府的最高神明。
