At the lobby, the altar on the right is to Man Cheung (God of Examinations and Fate), and on the left, to the God for the Elderly.

Worshippers bring offerings of flowers and oranges, and light joss sticks or incense for the gods, Fortune Tellers are also on duty just before the main entrance, in case you wish to know your future fate.

 

This Association was established in 1886 by migrants from Guangdong Province in China, mainly from the prefectures Kwong Foo and Siew Foo, hence the name Kwong Siew. The Association building was constructed in 1888 by artisans from China and restored in 1995. It incorporates a Taoist temple dedicated to the Chinese deity Kwan Ti (God of War and Literature). Two stone lions guard the entrance to this building. The fish on the entrance gate represent abundance. Kwan Ti is flanked on the right by Thai Swee (Guardian of the Year) and Kuan Yin (Goddess of Mercy). The left altar is to Choi Sen (God of Wealth) and the Tiger God.
