The Chinese Community Series: Stone tablets in old temples depict historical ties between Singapore and Malacca
The Chinese community in Singapore and Malacca during 19th century was dominated by the families of See, Neo and Tan. See Hoot Kee and his brother in law Neo Bee Kiat, the families of Tan Tock Seng and Tan Kim Seng were also worth mentioning. Three generations of the Tan Families were the prominent Chinese community leaders then. To date, we are still able to understand their contributions through the plaque and tablets that were preserved at the old temples, e.g. Cheng Hoon Teng Temple in Malacca and Thian Hock Keng as well as Hong San See Temple in Singapore.
