There is a lot to see here. Make sure you take the stairs and stop at all the floors. Lots of history on Buddhism to learn.

Must visit place. Next to Chinatown. Most venerable place for Singaporean Buddhists. After this, we visited Chinatown. Not a fancy looking place. Great foods, and pretty damn cheap for Singapore. We went to Michelin star place. It just cost just about 2 CAD per person.

There is actually a Buddha Tooth relic in the top floor, which you can take a look at. Other highlights would be to experience the mass prayer at the grand hall in the first floor and the nicely maintained museum upstairs.

We visited while they were doing spiritual readings and monks rythmicly reading. Lots of beautiful Buddha's and offerings to each. Incense in the air adds to the experience.

It is a beautiful temple in the heart of Chinatown. Worth seeing. As for cultural value, I found it too crowded at midday so it took away the serenity. There are more peaceful temples but nothing on this scale.

The temple is open to the public FOC. It’s quite a tranquil place amidst the bussle of Chinatown. There is not a great deal to see but, if you are a Buddhist, it will be on interest.

This is one of the most well furnished temples. Situated in the heart of the city, it's ideal for tourists to have a look at the various monuments in the temple.

Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful
sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling
sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its
blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an
Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit
almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony
continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to
the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill.
