This website presents a collection of mixed media artwork of places of worship by a local artist, Dr Ho Chee Lick. Plotted on an interactive map with 3D street view, the drawings illustrate Singapore’s multi-religious landscape. For each drawing, we list the names, address, year established, date of sketch as well as relevant literature and websites, if any. An index of drawings has also been compiled.

In total, there are 381 drawings of predominantly Chinese shrines of Buddhism, Taoism, popular religion and sectarian religions from antiquity to contemporary times, churches  Hindu templesIslamic mosquesSikh temples,  and others. The data was compiled in 2015 and 2016.
