The temple is located in China Town, in ca. 10 minutes walk from China Town MRT station. It is unfortunately forbidden to take photoes in some parts of the temple, but in general you can make them, but without flash. The temple looks like golden inside, thousands of Buddhas surround you. You can use elevator to get up on the other floors. Different exhibitions are located there, everything is for free. We spent around 40 minutes in the temple as it is rather big. It wsas definitely the most beatiful temple I have ever seen in my life.

Great example of a functioning temple with space for tourists to look through also. I enjoyed the space and history and found it contained meditative spaces too on the different floor levels. Books at entry were much appreciated and read frequently.
