We were told about this attraction by our hotel and after spending 8 days in Singapore we found this to be the 'hidden gem' of our trip!
Yes it's unusual - like Disneyland with tumbleweeds! There is a truly peaceful feel there as you wander through display after display of Chinese mythology figures. The ponds are full of small turtles that have been breeding rapidly for years and are layered on top of each other 3 and 4 high.
The dedicated groundsman are raking up the large brown leaves with cane rakes and lighting incense sticks at every God/Goddess display - they all had a smile and were welcoming.
As you walk through vibrant colored displays with amazing statues you also feel the presence of the love of a family who created a dynasty - Tiger Balm. The story of the grand house that once stood there is quite moving - it was torn down after the death of one of the brothers and ravaged by the war.
The ten stages of hell may be a bit much for young children or the squeamish but it is only one small portion of the park.
Free entry and a small trip on the MRT (turn right as you come out of the station and its in front of you) makes this a great way to spend a couple of hours.
Well worth a look!
