Ok, so here we are on the 3rd night of our stay in Phuket. Its raining incessantly and fortunately we have a rental with us. So getting around wasn’t difficult.
Anyway, when reading lazily this evening we came across this wonderful blog post about the Buddha relic temple and museum right in the heart of Singapore. We say that because it’s absolutely true. The temple is in Chinatown, adjacent to the modern CBD. Mel had intended to visit, photograph and tell all about the place being yet another free attraction (the Sri Mariamman temple further down the road is another) in our little red dot.
Well, Mick does it better and we’ll leave you to read his post!
“Giving Off Aroma of Positivity”
About five minutes walk from Chinatown MRT station, the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple & Museum is a must-see architectural feat in the heart of Singapore’s Chinatown district. We entered the temple using the Banda St. gate through the Mountain Gate or the Shān Mén in Chinese and was greeted with the strong aroma of incense burning filling the whole front courtyard with a feel good positive chi.
“Ceiling of Golds and Royals”
“Bodhisattva Cintamanicakra Avalokitesvara”
I think the temple has 7 levels, be sure to check them all out. A lot of interesting stuff. Just don’t forget that it’s a temple so respect the people praying, keep quiet ayt?
