The Thian Hock Keng Temple is also known as the Temple of Heavenly Happiness. It is is the oldest and most important Fukien, or Hoklo temple in Singapore, and is dedicated to Matsu, the Taoist goddess of the sea and protector of all seamen. At the back of the main temple is a second smaller Buddhist shrine dedicated to Kuan Yin, the bodhisattva of mercy.

A 'joss house' was built on this site in about 1820 and used by early Chinese immigrants to Singapore to thank the Goddess for their safe passage. The Thian Hock Keng Temple was built on the place of this joss house between 1839-42.

The Thian Hock Keng Temple is very close to Chinatown in Singapore. The Thian Hock Keng Temple is also close to the Sri Mariamman Temple.
