A historic temple with many visitors. Worth having a look if you are in the area. Easy access from MRT station.

We went there the day after Mid Autumn Festival. The place was crowded with people - reciting their prayer books at the steps, burning incenses in all sections of the temple, bringing flowers and offerings, and of course tourists taking pictures (like us).

Well maintained and beautiful temple with many deities for you to pay respects/ pray to. There is a counter that you can go to, to buy lucky charms as souvenirs for yourself or friends. The temple is popular with locals as well. Note: There is a underground mall with shops selling clothes/ umbrellas/ offering massages etc.

This is a place to visit if you have not visited buddist temples yet. But if you have seen several temples earlier, this is not exceptional in size or decoration. The temple is old and still in active use. You can see a lot of prayers here. It will give good view on local religion.

In general i am not that keen to visit temples. But here I really liked walking by and inhaling some of the atmosphere. It can also be easily included in a walk though the wider neighborhood. We visited on a Sunday. Don't know if other days are different from the crowds.

This location is amazing and FREE. Enjoy the koi fish and dragon water fountain upon arrival and the traditional Buddhist/Taoist architecture. Be careful of the mass crowds, but enjoy watching and better understanding those who come to worship, pray, and leave gifts.

The temple is easy to get to by MRT (has its own station) and is amazing. It was quite crowded when we went (Late Friday afternoon) but still exposes you to a great cultural experience.
