Place of worship and small piece of quiet and harmony inside Singapore. Take your time and remember to dress accordingly. I think it's a good idea to stop for few minutes at the entrance and soak the atmosphere before proceeding further.

The inside is shining and awesomely decorated. It gives one of the most awesome feelings to be inside this temple with Buddhas looking at you from all sides. And the feeling is just awesome. Very peaceful in sharp contrast to the flea market I had just left behind. It's a must visit!

Beautiful and packed with history. I learnt quite a lot about Buddhism in here and the staffs were quite helpful to explain to me too. Each floor offers different kind of history so it's nice.

It is such a beautiful temple. I loved all the bodhisattvas! I strongly recommend taking time out of your visit to Chinatown to see this beautiful place and be in awe.

This is a wonderful temple but be warned it is extremely busy. Make sure that you go up to the different floor, because each floor offers something different and beautiful.

Gorgeous inside with tons of "gold" and over 100 VERY nice statues of Buddha. This is a genuine temple, so you will encounter many people praying. I liked the "zodiac" Buddha's with a statue and description for each of the 12 signs. Be sure to wear sone thing that covers your upper arms and knees. If you forget, they have... More

This temple has many Golden Buddhas collected in one area, and used as a prayer site. It is highly recommended to take the tour, as the guides there are highly knowledgeable.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colorful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
