Reflective doors of Thian Hock Keng

Built in 1839 with the support of prominent members of the Hokkien community, Thian Hock Keng Temple is Singapore's oldest Chinese temple. The "Temple of Heavenly Happiness" still stands amidst Chinatown's cool bars and restaurants—an ornate reminder of the area's beginnings. Together with the detailed carvings and sculptures of dragons, phoenixes and deities, as well as the colourful broken porcelain on the roof ridges - a Fujian decorating technique - these painted doors are a reflection of the artistry that went into creating what is now a national monument.
