“Nice place to spend a hot afternoon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Though recently constructed, this place is a nice tourist spot specially on a hot afternoon (as it is air conditioned). It is a very tourist friendly place and hence doesn't give the authentic feeling...but hey you can't have both ways :-). Visitors can take snaps - even with a flash. Though cut sleeve and shorts above knees are not allowed, they give you clothes to cover your body. All levels have something different to offer. Luckily we were there at 1:30pm for afternoon chants and prayers. It was a very peaceful and calming experience.

“Hidden Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Stop by during a Buddhist service if possible (my wife and I were lucky enough to stop by during an investiture of Buddhist nuns. The entryway elevator leads to an excellent balcony view of the interior. One block from the Maxwell Food Court and in the southern corner of Chinatown.

This place is so beautiful and serene. It is a must to explore each and every floor to fully appreciate the marvellous statues and background stories to Buddhism and Buddhist related topics.
