  • It is a temple building consisting of new concrete building. It was a glitzy facilities stand tall and red-painted walls. En route to the Food Center through the hustle and bustle from the subway station. I think a trip to Chinatown Food Center is a popular tourist place. I stopped by while we visited the food centre.

  • Beautiful temple. The sound of the monks chanting was a wonderful experience to witness. The fourth floor of the temple is where you can see the Buddha's tooth enshrined in a pure gold alter. There are also meditation areas on the fourth floor. Saw people of all ages meditating. You can also light a candle and place it on the alter for a safe passage home. Here's to a safe flight home in a couple of weeks!
  • It is a very beautiful Buddhist temple and one of the most frequented temple by tourists located in China town. Inside the temple there are lots of statues mostly the statues of a Buddha. They play Buddhist sound tracts which make us feel peaceful while walking in and around the temple. It is worthy spending some time making merits. When visiting this temple, wearing descent pant and shirt is recommended. However, they provide some cloths to cover before entry to temple so no need to worry. Visiting China town? Paying your visit to this holy temple will be worth it. Entry fees per person: free Time of travel: March 2018 Type of Traveler: Couple
  • Interesting Chinese temple, if you like Chinese temple stuffs you can come and pay a visit. The main hall is well decorated, like it's very new. Don't expect anything historical here. The most impressive thing I found in this building is it's architecture beauty. It's not like an ordinary temple isn't it? Instead you could say it looks like some castle in the Middle Ages. Adorable.
  • A warm welcome is provided to tourists, public and locals alike. The reception here felt truly at home, and guests are provided with shawls (for those who may need to cover exposed areas of their body such as the arms and shoulders). The place is truly majestic and one will take time to explore the different levels. Just remember to return the shawls when done with the tour of the place.
  • beautiful temple with its beautiful architecture. Nice place for those who want to pray or just admire the beauty of this temple. Every floor and section of this temple are worthed to explore. Coming to this place feel you are going out from busy Singapore city, even though it feels so hectic outside the temple.

The Chinese Tang dynasty-style building in the heart of Chinatown houses a tooth relic of Buddha, as well as other revered artefacts. This is a fine example of the Chinese Tang dynasty style of architecture in the heart of Chinatown. As its name suggests, the museum houses a tooth relic of Buddha, as well as other revered artefacts. Built in 2007, the temple takes up the complex’s ground floor, and visitors will marvel at the rich interiors comprising paintings, statues & other exhibits related to Buddha and Buddhism. The building also has a roof garden, a library, a vegetarian restaurant in the basement and a bookstore. Visitors can gain more insight into the Buddhist way of life during the “Discovering Buddhism” workshop.
