I loved this temple. The history is very interesting and has a really calming effect. The roof garden is a must to go up to and sit and 'think.'

Ladies, make sure you take a shawl to cover your shoulders.

Its worthwhile for tourists to come and see this beautiful building. Lots of levels

Take your time with this one-it has 5 floors and a roof top garden-work your way down and see each individual floor you will be dumbstruck-we went back a second time to take it all in again and to buy some lucky money so our names could be put on our donation and give us luck.

Huge temple with many collections of statues. I took a lot of pictures there with my friends. Really nice to visit when you are in Singapore, especially when you are in Chinatown.
