Believed to be discovered in 1890 by a monk from China, Sam Poh Tong became his meditating place for nearly 20 years till his passing. In the present day, the temple complex is thronged by nuns and monks who practice Buddhism. The grounds also have a Japanese pond that is home to a family of carps and tortoises, epitomising longevity.
