  • It's been a few years since our last visit. It was going through renovation and rebuilding then. This temple has more than 100 years of deep history and the design is absolutely authentic original des...  more »
  • I found this temple for the first time on a trip on the nearby Expressway and immediately decided to visit. The nearest MRT station is Toa Payoh (19 NS) and from there there is still 15-20 min. The temple is very hidden in a residential area, but the way there well signposted. There is a beautiful temple and a Buddhist monastery and as I still not have seen it before during many visits to Singapore. There is a small museum with exhibits on the history of the monastery and of the architecture of the temple. Everything is no entrance fee, but a donation is always welcome. During my visit, was already decorated the entire Temple because of the early Chinese new year Festival and was thus still watchable. Please note that's almost everywhere is not allowed in the temple to make photos, you can therefore only admire the atmosphere and enjoy. But trying to take pictures, then you be sure it is not unseen, because everywhere there are surveillance cameras and they are prompted then kindly refrain from more photos. Absolutely worthwhile visiting in this temple is guaranteed, if you take the way!

  • Another visit to this so peaceful atmosphere and Monastery. Just love to meditate there. Pictures of the life and times of Buddha I have not seen for some years now. Pity as there is a lovely story For the children and adults of course. The dedication if the workers who look after this temple are to be commended.
  • The oldest Buddhist monastery in Singapore, of which, the architectural is preserved through the years. There are still a lot of buddhist who goes there to pray during the usual buddhist festivals. But be prepared for the incense, and burnt paper offerings smoke though.
  • This temple played an important part in Singapore's history, particularly during world war 2. It was also a key temple for the development of martial arts in Singapore and one time home of famous master Sek Koh Sam (Shi Gao Can). The temple was built in 1903 but has been restored a number of times and is on great condition.
  • One of Singapore's oldest temples. Well maintained and rich in history.
  • Good for praying tai sui Big temple. *peaceful*
