The ceremony at the temple is interesting. I like the garden on the top and Vairocana Buddha Prayer Wheel.

Whilst you are walking the crowded streets of Chinatown and haggling for souvenirs and cute kitsch you suddenly enter an oasis of peace...the Buddha Tooth Relic temple....small and serene. We prayed and lit incense sticks and felt calm envelop us.

i've seen a lot of buddhist temples, and this one is spectacular in the amount of gold (real gold) everywhere in its huge ornate spaces. don't miss the shrine of the tooth upstairs, where there are even comfortable cushions for those who might wish to meditate. hard to imagine that the buddha himself would enjoy this extravagent place, but it...

Right in the midst of China Town , the Buddha Tooth Relic temple is situated. Everyone is allowed inside except those with bare uncovered legs. You can light a joss stick , given free by the temple and say your prayer.

This temple quite far from mrt. But when walking, the chinatown surrounding is interesting. Please use proper clothes. As I remember, short pants not allowed. Yes. This temple can't compare with Thailand temple. Try to have lunch or tea break in chinatown. Plenty nice places

Amazing place with serenity at the heart of the city. With street shopping and food street around, this is a perfect place to calm your mind, stomach and shopping urge at the same time.

We've seen a lot of temples in our time but this is impressive. They were decorating for Chinese new year which was interesting. Although reviewers have commented about covering up, this is a shoes ON hats OFF temple.

A building at the entrance that has a big impact, given its size and architectural beauty. Women have to cover at the entrance of temple. If no chance of cover, the temple is prepared to provide clothing. It is a temple with three floors which includes the whole story of Buddha. There is also a lift so we can visit... More
