This place wasn't planned but I' m really happy they we went there. A peaceful and interesting place to learn about Buddha and the construction of this temple as well. They have also a small vegetarian restaurant. Must see place, absolutely.

Complete eternal peace. Beautiful Buddha temple made in Red & Gold colour is delight to eyes. 5 storey building which has museum on two floors. Must visit destination when in Singapore. Spare some time for peaceful meditation. Also visit Eight Treasure vegetarian restaurant in the next lane. Specially for vegetarian tourists.

This piece of architecture looks relatively new, but is still very impressive. For those who don't care for religion, it's still worth a visit just to marvel at the structure.

When you look from the outside you don't imagine what you'll find inside. Thousand of Buda images, small, smaller and bigger ones. Ear the priests in their prayers and feel the peace and tranquility.

This is right in the middle of the Chinatown market shopping precinct and withing easy distance of the MRT station. Make sure you go all the way to top floor to see the golden room with the tooth relic. It is spectacular.

It's a really awesome place to look around. There are hundreds of statues of buddha (maybe not the buddha). there is a statue skin's color like blue, it's really attracting. when I visited the Temple, there were many buddhist, they were praying and reading scriptures enthusiastically. If you go to the temple around lunch time, you should visit the maxwell... More

This is a must see in Singapore. The detail of the sculptures in the Temple is something to behold. Taking of photographs are permitted.

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.
