Came across this Buddhist temple because I was staying across the road at hotel Yan. It's not the most ornate or frequented Buddhist temple I've seen, but if you are in the area it's worth a visit if only for the calming atmosphere inside.

An oasis. There are simple step by step signages to guide newcomers on what to do at the temple. Turning the giant prayer wheel makes one feel at peace. Hope to visit again to understand more about Tibetan Buddhism.

The main Shakyamuni Buddha statue is designed as the same as the one in the historic Jokhang temple in Lhasa, Tibet.... which was made during Buddha's lifetime. So if you are wondering how Shakyamuni Buddha looked like back in ancient India, go and have a look. Saw rare holy relics at the temple display area too. Wonderful place with Tibetan... More

I am staying just a few metres away from here and I love to smell the incense as I go buy and hear the beautiful chiming of the bell. I love how there is a Christian church opposite which shows the diversity of religions in Singapore.

After my walking along Serangoon road to see the main attractions of Little India district , I took a taxi and asked the driver to show off-the beaten tracks temples. Then he headed to this Tibetan temple. I was really impressed with the atmosphere of that calm place and really felt good there.

This is a small Tibetan style temple located off Jalan Besar. Note that Beatty Lane is quite a distance from Beatty Rd (so if you're near Serangoon Road you actually have to walk across to Jalan Besar and cross it to get to Beatty Lane). The temple is in good condition and you need to remove footwear in order to... More

The founder of this temple is a Chinese Singaporean, name Felix Lee. And he is known as rinpoche Namdrol tulku. He is a great reincarnation of a learned geshela. This temple is endorsed by... More

This is probably the only Budhist temple that is open for 24 hours in this part of Singapore. It is quite small but the atmosphere is welcoming, cosy and warm. You can feel the warmth and compassion of the temple. This temple focuses on the energy and spirit of the Jhambala deities. Even if you are not a Buddhist, this... More
