"... a useful source for scholars and students interested in the religious and organizational history of the Overseas Chinese in Singapore. It demonstrates how the worship of Mazu, a well-known sea goddess among the Chinese, and the Thian Hock Keng Temple dedicated to the deity, was the cradle of the Hokkien Huay Kuan in Singapore." - citizen historian
