  • A PIOUS PLACE OF PEACE.WONDERFUL PAINTINGS /PICTURES OF LORD BUDDHA WHICH MAKE US TO REALIZE THE MEANING OF LIFE.UNIQUE PLACE OF WORSHIP. EVERYBODY SHOULD VISIT THIS PLACE AND TRY TO UNDERSTAND & FOLLOW WHAT LORD BUDDHA PREACHED TO THE WORLD.THE STATUTES ARE AMAZING WHICH MAKE US TO FEEL THAT THEY ARE REAL.
  • This temple is really beautiful and well-maintained. The entire place is very calming (air-conditioned no less), and there is even a chamber on level 4 with elevated areas near the windows for you to do some mediation/self-reflections (cushions provided). Do check out the roof garden too which is beautifully adorned with many plants, and also houses a giant prayer wheel for you to spin.
  • Typical Buddhist temple. Houses over thousands of Buddha idols each of different styles and postures. Their prayers are very soothing to hear. And this is the only temple where I have seen people are allowed to go inside without having to remove your footware
  • Easily accessible, doesn't require queuing or anything like that, just a very good insight to the Buddhist culture and their worships. Worth a trip to visit. Also fully air conditioned and very majestic sculptures. Just remember not to wear hats or revealing shorts as it is a religious place.
  • A stunning new build temple set in an old style. Sort of retro futuristic in a weird way? In any case, this place is beautiful serene, calm and peaceful. There are many photo opportunities to be had here, though it's best to be mindful of how snap happy you get. The walls are adorned with different Buddhas, and the room at the back provides enjoyment for finding the Buddha that matches the year of your birth and animal. Definitely worth a visit when in Chinatown
