About Lin San Temple
The Hakka Shifu Ruixiang from Guangdong established Lin San Temple, which is located at 27 Lorong 12, Geylang.

20 years ago, Lin San Temple was named as a perilous structure and had to be revamped. Due to the damage of building foundation, lacking of funds and more reasons, Venerable Seang Heng’s hope for the remake of sanctuary had to be shelved, even till his passing in 2017.

At the age of 11, he became a monk and grew up in Nanjing Gulin Temple. He then moved to station in Port Klang at Malaysia.
