1.The current Fu Tak Chi museum was built in 1824 to worship the chinese god Tau Pek Gong. It was a place of worship for the taoists and confucianists. The cantonese and Hakka immigrants built this shrine to thank Tau Pek Gong for their safe journey to here from China. In 1969 the temple was restored when donations poured in. In 1989, it was converted into the current Fu Tak Chi Museum which is used to house historical artifacts that remained from the immigrant days.
2. Singapore's earliest market is Telok Ayer Market which dated back to 1825 when it was just a wooden structure near the sea allowing unloading of goods. It was demolished in 1879 due to the reclamation at Telok Ayer Basin. It was rebuilt and designed with the octagonal structure by an architect called James Macritchie. It was conserved in 1973, but was demolished again to make way for MRT lines. Finally in 1991 , it was rebuilt with the same octagonal structure and there after named Lau Pat Sat which means old market.
