Very elaborate temple - only had the chance to have a quick peek inside while waiting for Tour East bus to depart. Would like to have participated in the free tour (Saturdays? - dates/times displayed on a board inside) but had other pre-booked tours on my agenda. Having been to the Temple of the Tooth in Sri Lanka, would like... More

I chanced upon this temple while exploring the Duxton hill, Neil road area. A very intricately-designed temple, one is free to enter it, just observe the rules posted outside. Ouside there is a big vessel(?) where one can light incense before entering the temple. Very quiet place, great place to do some meditation even if you are not a Buddhist.... More

It is hard to find your bliss and space within this beautiful temple as it is thronged by tourists. However, it is beautifully decorated. Must visit whilst you're in Chinatown.

The Buddha Tooth Relic Temple was really amazing. I found it really interesting touring around the temple. Don't neglect to visit all the floors, including the roof that are the 100 Buddhas with a bit of garden. And a bit of the history also in the 3rd floor, i think, with the story of Buddha and how he come on... More

The inside of the temple is something to behold with all the Buddhas and decoration, and the museum is a great place to read up and get started on the faith if you want to. I caught the guards asking some girls to cover their shoulders and one girl turned away with a thigh length skirt, so ladies if you... More

We had booked several tours in Singapore. Some stopped at the Buddha Temple. Being Singapore. Safe.Clean,pleasant and non threatening. Do yourself a favour. visit the Temple. It is worth the insight into the culture of others. The smell of incense is great. The people very frienfly. Linger a bit longer.
