This is yet another must see. However, instead of seeing the relic, which is impossible as it is incased in gold, try to witness the people around praticing their religion. It is only open very few minutes twice a day, make sure that you get there at this time. We bought a guide outside. This was great. It is "free",... More

Worth visiting site. I went there with my family on a sunny they, luckily there was a ceremony there so we were able to see the process. Even we couldn't get inside because it was packed, we still had a great time

Temple with serenity especially the third floor wherein one can meditate in peaceful & silent ambiance next to the tooth relic. Great temple to visit.

Liked the opulence of a temple that is still being used by worshippers. Didn't see the museum or signs pointing to it. Thought we would be able to go upstairs but couldn't find the signage to get there.

It's a Chinese Buddhist temple with the arts of carvings and historic marks. Fully air conditioning temple which will never happen in other place. There are 4 floors with different Buddhist culture from different countries.

A somewhat imitation of a Chinese temple but very tastefully done with a peaceful and serene atmosphere. Ladies must cover up but they can provide shawls etc for that. It's worth visiting just for the rooftop garden. Wish Singapore had more peaceful places like this.

The place is devoted for offering prayer for the upcoming buddha on ground level, level 2 and level 3 is mainly museum with various buddha statues and painting contributed from countries around the world and the top floor have the great shrine for Buddha Tooth relic...its a great soothing place and one can also stop by for meditation if desired.

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.
