This is my second visit in a year, this is a Buddhist temple but all can visit, This place is very clean and very well maintained I love the atmosphere it makes you calm and settled. It is situated at China town and worth a visit.

It's an active temple. People studying while we were there to visit. Have covers that you can use to cover up if you're not wearing suitable attire. Knee length shorts are acceptable. Lots of gold and beautiful decoration. Definitely worth a visit

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!
