35. Chee Tong Temple 慈忠坛 (Ci Zhong Tan)

Located in the HDB estate at 62 Hougang Ave 3 (near to blk.248), this is probably the only most contemporary Chinese temple in Singapore. A temple dedicated to the three main deities - Huang Lao Xian Shi 黄老仙师, Da Sheng Fo Zu 大圣佛祖 and Tai Shang Lao Jun 太上老君, it was built in 1987, designed by the team of Akitectenggara - Mr. Tay Kheng Soon, Mr.Ho Kwon Cjan and Mr. Patrick Chia.


It was designed in close consultation with one of the Deities of the temple, through his medium in trance (according to this document at Archnet. At every stage of the designed, the medium in trance was consulted, through an interpreter.

This temple still has consultation services every Tuesday and Saturday evenings from 8pm. I understand that the Deity giving consultation is Huang Lao Xian Shi.

This temple used to be located on Bukit Timah Road, just across from ACS. It was housed in an old colonial-style building.
