Such a shame that the "relic" is fake yet they sell the attraction like the real stuff. Have they not heard of "no fakes" or "originals only"?

I guess it has 3 or 4 floors and extremely well maintained. Tranquil atmosphere and at once place you can even meditate and feel the silence around you amidst the buddhist chants. The Museum is very impressive and inspires you by highlighting all the aspects of the life of Buddha. A must go if you are near China Town.

This place is much more extensive then I expected. Do check it out if you are in Chinatown as its well worth it.

First time that I got inside a Buddhist Temple. The relics and design are beautiful and very fascinating. Those wearing shorts and sleeveless shirts need to wear sarongs which I understand is for respect.

This temple is stunning. Laced with gold and red decoration all around and each wall filled with numbered statues of the deities. There were thousands of the statues and we visited during a reading which was very interesting. The smell of incense sticks add to the fabulous atmosphere. All free to visit and take pictures too.

We only had a few minutes to look in this temple before being whisked off to the night zoo. The gilded dragons and statues were amazing. My wife was unable to enter the main temple room because her shoulders were uncovered. As this was a bonus on another trip that we had not expected to do, this was not a... More

The Buddha Tooth Relic Temple is a haven of tranquility amid the hustle and bustle of Chinatown. There is so much to take in, that you need to walk through it more than once to do it justice. If you're lucky, your visit may coincide with the monks chanting - I've experienced it, it's so moving and calming at the... More
