  • The largest monastery in Singapore. This place could require at least 45mins to 1 hours if you want to walk through the whole complex in details! The architecture of the complex is amazing, information board is easy to understand too! Highly recommend to visit if you haven’t been here before.

  • Temple where locals visit, pray and provide offerings to their ancestors. The temple also provide chanting services from monks. There are also lessons offered to people interested to learn more about Buddhism. Friendly and helpful staff. Limited parking near the office area but plenty of parking lots at the multi-story carpark where the ecoburner is.
  • Lost the old charm it use to have back in the 1970 But still worth a visit once in a while .
  • One of the largest buddhist temple in Singapore. The entire place is well kept and tidy. Very peaceful and serene.
