Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum, Chinatown Singapore

For the first time this year, Rachel travelled to Singapore alone and she had a little adventure of her own. We were supposed to travel together however due to work, Rachel had to travel solo.

She went there for a wedding and also for a small travel assignment for our blog. We are humbled and grateful for our sponsor Roomorama.com for our stay in this trip. We will blog about the experience there for our readers.

While Rachel was wondering around Chinatown, she spotted a beautiful Chinese temple. It looks like as if the temple is relocated from China. Rachel took this beautiful picture with a Panasonic Lumix TZ15.

The temple is called the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum. The temple is based on Tang dynasty architectural style and it cost $63 million to build it. It is designed by Venerable Shi Fa Zhao.

The five storey temple has a lift inside. Rachel didn’t venture all the floors.

In one of the halls, there were Buddhists praying while certain halls exhibit relic of Buddha.

It is claimed that the relic of Buddha was found in 1980 in a collapsed stupa in Myanmar. Since the temple opening, the Venerable Shi Fa Zhao designed temple has become a popular attraction within Chinatown and Singapore.

Rachel loved the design and the architecture of the temple. It could be a coincidence or fate to spot a beautiful temple like this in Chinatown Singapore. No matter you are Buddhist or not, this temple is worth a visit.
