This is right off the tourist radar. Aside from people who've come for prayer or contemplation, you'll have the entire place to yourself. Beautiful statuary, buildings, pagoda... all in the Hokkienese style. Leave a donation and light a joss stick! Relax and enjoy the serenity....More

Wow! How glad we were to have gone. This temple is completely untouristy. We were the only Westerners. It’s quiet, huge, beautiful and super interesting. Unique glimpse into a functioning monastery in a totally local neighbourhood. Not mentioned in any guidebook. Go early morning.

It is a must-see for tourists or Singaporeans looking to find a place deep in history (more than 100-year-old Buddhist Temple). It reminds me of a typical Buddhist or chinese house in old China when I visited Beijing/Shanghai. But to find a temple like this...More
