Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum (新加坡佛牙寺龙华院) is a four-storey Buddhist Temple located in the Central district of Singapore. It was built based on the Tang Dynasty architectural style and also to house the tooth relic of the historical Buddha – claimed that it was found in 1980 in Myanmar.
From outside, you can see the grand building, like super huge temple, and it is! When you step inside, you can see every beautiful part of the temple. It’s artistic, colorful, and very Zen. It gives you warmth and peace when you are inside the temple. It’s also very clean and wide. You can take elevator to go to the Sacred Light Hall (Sacred Buddha Tooth Relic Chamber) on the top floor, which is the repository of the sacred Buddha tooth. *no photographs allowed in this place
There are a lot of Buddha statues around the temple. There’s also a beautiful garden located on the top floor. I suggest you to visit this place at least once even if you’re not Buddhist. It’s worth it to see around the place and enjoy the Zen vibe.
Around the temple, it’s already the Chinatown market which sells lots of cheap things and souvenirs.
If you want to visit this place, for ladies I recommend to wear shirt / dress that can cover up your shoulder and also long skirt / pants. But if you wear sexy shirt like me last time also don’t worry because the temple provide a scarf to cover your body before you enter the temple.
