History of Amoy Street

Amoy Street was developed in the 1830s as a part of the 1822 Raffles’ plan of Chinatown. It is listed as “Amoi Street” in the 1836 Coleman’s Map of Singapore. Construction of the street was completed in 1842. The street probably got its name from Amoy, a European term for Xiamen port in Fujian Province, China. At that time, many Hokkien immigrants from Amoy had made Singapore their home. The street was an early Hokkien settlement that also had their temples and huis (or “associations”). Being near the shoreline, Amoy Street had businesses that was catered to serve the sailors and the sea trade. The street was associated with opium-smoking dens during colonial times. Some of the oldest religious buildings in Singapore are located along this street. A few of these religious buildings, Thian Hock Keng Temple, Masjid Al-Abrar and the Nagore Durgha Shrine, are gazetted national monuments. A free school, Cui Ying School, was constructed along this street in 1854.
