Carrying on a 127-year-old legacy

The Academy of Classical Chinese Culture is new contemporary education arm of Say Tian Hng Buddha Shop. Established in 1896, the 4th-generation shop is one of the oldest heritage businesses in Singapore.

Say Tian Hng has been featured by the National Geographic, Asian Civilisations Museum, National Gallery (Singapore), National Heritage Board, South China Morning Post, The Straits Times, Lianhe Zaobao, and the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth.

The setup of its new Academy was made possible with support from private philanthropy and the Organisation Transformation Grant of the National Heritage Board, Singapore.

Together with our proudly-Singaporean team of educators, theatre practitioners, master craftsmen and docents, we aim to reconnect the timeless wisdom from one of humanity's oldest civilisations to our modern lives.
