    Largest in the Buddhist temples in Singapore and of the visits according to the information in the Internet. Here at Japan guide book whatsoever not introduced seems. Inside is divided into several parts, some intriguing in its own way, but still your nationality is regrettable because you didn't feel too much historical weight. In the building bearing the Pagoda Buddha main hall on the second floor, is Kannon is located in the garden.

    Definitely one of the biggest temples/monastery in Singapore. It is huge, quiet and very peaceful. You can easily spend a good hour here. There are also books and guides available in stands and shelves that you can get in exchange of a donation. It's a beautiful place.

    I might not be the most religious guy around but I really do love the ambience here. Often just coming here to take a walk and relax. One of the most beautifully adorned temple in Singapore for sure.

    Beautiful monastery! Was here on Vesak day. I think it was both the best and the worst day to be on the site. On one hand, the festive atmosphere and the ceremonies were a bonus, but it sure takes the peaceful and quiet atmosphere it normally has.
