Overview

Built by Chinese immigrants, the Hong San See Temple was built out of respect for the God of Filial Piety. It is widely believed that the deity had sold himself to slavery to pay for the maintenance of his parents' graves. Located up on a hill, the temple features some exquisite design elements. For instance, there are the intricate carvings on the beams, calligraphy and dragon motifs on the columns and pillars. Look out especially for the images of the Eight Immortals of Taoism on the ceiling of the altar hall.
