The success of Singapore can be found in the ability of its residents, who come from many backgrounds with a range of religious and philosophical beliefs, to get along in this bustling city. In quintessential Singaporean fashion, the Loyang Tua Pek Kong is a temple that serves Singapore's Hindu, Buddhist and Taoist communities. The beautiful temple was built in 2007 with donations from Singapore residents after the original, modest temple near the beach burned down in the mid-1990s. The temple, located on Loyang Way, is easy to reach by bus (ask your hotel concierge for directions) or by taxi. It is open 24 hours a day, and worshippers can be found there at any time. Packs of offerings, including candles, incense sticks and paper "money" to be burnt at altars, are available. It is a popular and well-loved temple and has many festivals and ceremonies throughout the year. .
