We were fortunate to arrive during a Buddhist ceremony with monks chanting and devotees praying. The building is imposing and beautiful. The authenticity of this temple is obvious. Remember the dress code: all must have covered shoulders - even short sleeves are permitted. Lovely, spiritual, beautiful, authentic. A must-see in Chinatown.

Allow yourself a good couple of hours to walk around and absorb all this place has to offer. Then go and satisfy your earthly hunger at the Maxwell Food Court that is diagonally across the street.

We have stopped in the Biddah Tooth Relic Temple and Museum a few times during visits to Singapore. Located on the edge of Chinatown, it is peaceful and calming. The decotations are incredible and that alone is worth the visit. A must see in Singapore!

Excellent architecture. I didn't go far inside. It felt too sacrilegious to walk through gawking at the monks chanting in their religious ceremony

The temple itself was well maintained, unlike those on mainland China, and on the ground floor I liked the painting of the 10 hells of Budism. On the 4th floor, you can visit the tooth, which is contained in a gold panelled room not accessible to the public. Either side of the bullet-proof glass is a small TV, which displays... More

Not to be missed a rare treat and view into a spiritual world many would never see. A trip to Singapore would not be complete without a visit to this temple.

The temple is stunning. You walk in through an incense haze into the temple. There are countless Buddha statues lining the walls and a large dais with massive Buddha statues. This temple is really the most awe-inspiring temple in Singapore.
