Did you know?

1.The current Fu Tak Chi museum was built in 1824 to worship the chinese god Tau Pek Gong. It was a place of worship for the taoists and confucianists. The cantonese and Hakka immigrants built this shrine to thank Tau Pek Gong for their safe journey to here from China. In 1969 the temple was restored when donations poured in. In 1989, it was converted into the current Fu Tak Chi Museum which is used to house historical artifacts that remained from the immigrant days.

2.Singapore's earliest market is Telok Ayer Market which dated back to 1825 when it was just a wooden structure near the sea allowing unloading of goods. It was demolished in 1879 due to the reclamation at Telok Ayer Basin. It was rebuilt and designed with the octagonal structure by an architect called James Macritchie. It was conserved in 1973, but was demolished again to make way for MRT lines. Finally in 1991 , it was rebuilt with the same octagonal structure and there after named Lau Pat Sat which means old market.

3.Telok Ayer Street during the immigrant days , it was lined with religious institutions such as the Al Abrar Mosque, Nagore Durgha Mosque, Thien Hock Keng Temple and Fu Tak Chi Temple. Here the immigrants offer their prayers to thank their gods for their safe journey here.

4. Tanjong Pagar Railway Station was completed in 1932 and was closed down on 1st July 2011 after 80 years of glorious history. The government will conserve this historical place as a national monument. Before this station was built commuters have to take ferries across the 1 km straits.

There are four giant sculptures on the walls of the entrance which represent Agriculture, Industry, Transport and Commerce. These were the works of a famous Italian sculptor Rudolfo Nolli. There used to be a hotel at the second floor called Lim Eng Peng Station's hotel which closed down in 1993. In future commuters will have to catch a train from the upcoming Woodlands Station.

5.Golden Bridge Food Centre along Shenton Way used to be crowded with local hawkers from 1973-2011. When the 30 years leasehold expired in 2003, many hawkers slowly ended their long time business there as Singapore Land Authority had plans to demolish the bridge which was postponed. Hence in late 2011, it was reopened for food, beverages and retail shops on shorter term lease of 3 years.
