Ubin Day Templing by Dr Vivienne Wee: 14 Jun (Sun)

Did you miss the the Tua Pek Kong festival on Pulau Ubin this year? 

Join the Singapore Heritage Society tour of three Chinese temples on Pulau Ubin and learn about the various gods of the temples and their various roles during the festival. We will start at the Fo Shan Teng Tua Pek Kong Temple in Ubin town, before walking up 200 meters to visit the hill temple. From there, we will visit the Wei To Temple to learn about the three levels of worship and the temple's deities of Malay, Hindu, Thai, and Burmese origins.

Our expert anthropologist, Dr. Vivienne Wee, will guide the tour. As a site of pilgrimage, a refuge for gods displaced from Singapore, and a repository of both memories and aspirations, the temples of Pulau Ubin are distinct to the Chinese religious landscape in Singapore.

Date: 14 Jun (Sun)
Time: 9.30am-11.30am
Venue: Meet 9.30am at the Assembly Area opposite the HSBC Volunteer Hub, map.
