  • Stunningly beautiful temple. No photography allowed inside to really show you the treat you are in for if you pay this temple a visit. Staff was very nice and were available to answer all our questions. The rooftop garden and museum are also worth the visit.
  • Definitely a must visit place if you're travelling in Singapore. As a local i visit this place at least twice a year. Good place to learn about the religion and to see its infrastructure. Basically in awe when you step into the temple. Relatively convenient to go to with many shops nearby to get your souvenirs. Really crowded during Chinese festivities.

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.
