LIKES:
1)The wonderful collections of religious relics.
2)The displays are well done; with good clear notes in several languages. the lightings are good too.
3)The roof top garden is well done; giving one a greenery break from the busy streets around China Town area.
4)The vegetarian food is reasonable, both in price and quality
DISLIKED:
1)The prices for the artifice are too high.
2)The management of the food area can be improved.

“Lots of heritage significance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

Beautiful temple. We will have to cover yourself up if you are wearing anything sleeveless and anything above knee level. They do provide sarong to wrap yourself up. Entrance is free so worth the visit.

“Cultural parts in the middle of modern Singapore”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

Located in the middle of Chinatown, in front of the Maxwell Hawker Center, this place is definitely worth to visit (it's free!). Learn full history of Buddhism in the museum, see the relics of Buddha and the golden statue inside, a lot of statue not only originated from China but also from India, Myanmar, Thailand, and other places. Wear proper clothes (no tanktops and shorts). Visit the small garden on the rooftop.

“Beautiful Temple ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013 via mobile

Really work a visit. No restricted access so can see all parts of the Temple even the second with services/ceremonies ongoing. The garden on the roof is very tranquil and the museum is a great summary of Buddhism. If you're there over lunch the food hall in the basement serves great vegetarian food for donation.

“well worth seeing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

This budha temple is found nearest China town and is the highlight of this area. All historical streets are also near by like Smyth pagoda Streets. Maxwell Road hawker food centre across the road is a must visit for its chicken an rice at Thian Thian food stall
