This temple complex, now almost 10 years old, has three temples sharing the same premises, on a 30-year lease. It is located adjacent to another rather famous temple complex in Singapore - the San QingGong Temple.

Directly opposite them is Huat Chu Kong. The Five Generals, Tiger God and Tu Ti Kong are also deities worshipped there. The temple was initially located at Kampong Chai Chee.

The temple in the middle (No. 9 Bedok North Street 5, SE 485875; Tel:6441-7080) - the Kuah Na Keng temple - has the Sam Bu Ong Yah as its main deity. In the inner chamber is Goddess of Mercy who dispenses holy water whenever any devotee kneels on a cushion placed in front of the Goddess. This temple was originally from Kembangan.

In the temple to the left (No. 7 Bedok North Street 5; Tel:6443-7873), one can find Ser Chew Boon Poh in the main hall (this deity was brought over from a temple in Tampines). Next to him is ShanCai Tong Zi, relocated from a Mandai temple. In the inner hall are theTua Li Sar Ya Peh.
