The Buddha Tooth Temple is one of the more popular tourist destinations in Singapore. I enjoyed visiting. If you like temples, history and art it is definitely worth a visit. The site includes a museum as well as an operating temple.
The Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum is a Buddhist temple and museum complex located in the Chinatown district of Singapore.
The temple is based on the Tang dynasty architectural style and built to house the tooth relic of the historical Buddha (opening in 2007). The relic of Buddha was found in a collapsed stupa in Myanmar in 1980.
I had some frog soup around the corner. I must say I didn’t like it – it had lots of little bones in it.
