A modest construction comprising only a court and a shrine room, this was the first Chinese temple in Singapore. Erected in 1820, it was rebuilt in 1825 as a Shentoist (a combination of Buddhism, Confucianism and Taoism) temple and was dedicated to Tua Pek Kong (God of Wealth). No longer serving as a temple today, Fuk Tak Chi has been transformed into Singapore's first street museum, with more than 2,000 artifacts collected over the years from Chinatown residents. It makes a good stopover for those intending to explore Far East Square— a reconstruction of old Chinatown, albeit a little too commercialized.
