Seng Wong Beo Temple is a city god temple located in Tanjong Pagar. Back when it was first constructed, the temple was nothing more than a wooden house. In 1905, it was rebuilt in the image of village temples of Southern China – and now stands out from the surrounding office blocks with its jewel green roof and bright red beams. A place for both Buddhist and Taoist worship, Seng Wong Beo Temple is today's best-known for conducting Chinese rituals known as ghost marriages – arranged between parties where one or both are deceased.
