25. Jiu Xian Gong 九玄宫

The Jiu Xian Gong 九玄宫, the shortened name for 九天玄女真仙。俗称玄女妈宫, started in 1928 by the Bai Clan at 7 milestone, Tampines Rd. In 1970, owing to rapid urbanisation, the temple started looking for a more permanent place for the temple. In 1982, a piece of land at Tampines Road was found and in 1985, the temple was built.
Many of the devotees and supporters of the temple are still from the Bai 白 Clan. Today, the temple stood tall at one end of the row of temples along the Old Tampines Road. Recently, further renovation to the temple was made.


This temple's main diety is Jiu Tian Xuan Nv 九天玄女. Jiu Tian Xuan Nv has a very long history and is well known amongst the Chinese people.

Dear Mr. Peck,
Thank you for pointing out the error in my posting. I have made the correction. Please let me know if the short form 九仙宫 is OK with you.

My apologies.

Hi Chinatownboy,

I am a devotee of sintua, Chinese Temples, especially to JiuTian XuanNv. A small little request: I would be very greateful if you could disclose Jiu Xuan Gong Address and time of Deity Consultations as I would like to visit the temple and also bring friends in need of consultation to the temple. As I came to know that the temple is near to Tampines which is very convenience for me to travel. The other JiuTian XuanNv Temple is too far from my place. Thanks for your assistance.
Please reply me at email: tankwee88@gmail.com

Regards & Good luck to all!
