The History

Established in the mid 19th Century by Hakka Shifu Ruixiang of Guangdong, Lin San Temple has been a mainstay in 27 Lorong 12 Geylang.

Upon Shifu Ruixiang’s passing in the 1960s, Venerable Seang Heng took over the helm and oversaw the first reconstruction of Lin San Temple in 1973.

In the early years, Lin San housed Ceremonial Prayer services, and took part in charities by orphanages and elderly homes.

The Present

20 years ago, Lin San Temple structure was identified as a perilous structure by authorities. Reconstruction of Lin San Temple had to be carried out. However, due to the lack of funding, the reconstruction work had to be shelved. Even right up till the death of Venerable Seang Heng in 2017.

Despite his passing, efforts to reconstruct Lin San Temple persevered in his spirit. After rounds of fundraising, Lin San Temple’s reconstruction was finally underway. On 11 March 2022, the revamped Lin San Temple was completed, fulfilling the Final Wish of Venerable Seang Heng!
