  • Well worth a visit a visit in Singapore. Beautiful vibrant and simply stunning. In the heart of China town. Take walk or the lift to the top floor and enter the peaceful rooftop garden and prayer wheel. Surrounded by lovely little coffee shops where you can sit and people watch to your hearts content
  • Buddha Tooth Relic Temple Buddhist temple in China Town, Singapore. Built relatively recently, in 2007. Since this time, it has become very popular among both local residents (in Singapore, one third of the population, that is, more than a million people are Buddhists) and among tourists. In the basement there is a dining room that is open up to 3PM, which serves vegetarian food for free. Donations are accepted. The main hall of the temple is very beautiful and solemn

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.
