  • Beautiful architect and it was amazing to feel the vibes from inside. The temple has many Buddhas sculptures. There is no entrance fees, you just have to properly dress up. They have a clothe which you can cover if you are not covered up. The location is easy to find on google maps and walking distance from China town.
  • An excellent landmark situated inside China town Singapore. Well decorated and secured, maintained by the temple authorities. Neat and clean and you'll feel the peace of holy place by just entering 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.
