You really cannot come to China town without coming her. I bring all my friends from overseas here and they love it. You don’t need to be religious. Just be respectful. more »
Well worth a visit a visit in Singapore. Beautiful vibrant and simply stunning. In the heart of China town. Take walk or the lift to the top floor and enter the peaceful rooftop garden and prayer wheel. Surrounded by lovely little coffee shops where you can sit and people watch to your hearts content
Buddha Tooth Relic Temple Buddhist temple in China Town, Singapore. Built relatively recently, in 2007. Since this time, it has become very popular among both local residents (in Singapore, one third of the population, that is, more than a million people are Buddhists) and among tourists. In the basement there is a dining room that is open up to 3PM, which serves vegetarian food for free. Donations are accepted. The main hall of the temple is very beautiful and solemn
