Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum in Singapore

Apart from the Sri Mariamman Temple, another favorite tourist attraction in Chinatown District, Singapore is the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum. Founded in 2002 by Venerable Shi Fa Zhao, the temple is dedicated to the Maitreya Buddha, which means ‘The Compassionate One” or “The Future Buddha.”

The temple is really majestic and the reason for this is that the lead designer, along with the local and overseas consultants who were part of the design team, incorporated the best of the Tang Dynasty (largely considered as a very important era in Chinese history) as well as the Buddhist Mandala. It is said that the details of the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum in Singapore were researched really well in order to ensure authenticity.

Admission to the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum is FREE. It’s open from Monday to Sunday, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. (including public holidays). Free vegetarian meals are served at the basement of the temple.

A few reminders – please wear decent clothes if you plan to enter the temple. This means that ladies can’t enter if they’re wearing any of these: bareback tops, off-the-shoulder tops, shorts, mini skirts and the like. You also cannot bring non-vegetarian food inside the temple. No pets allowed as well.

The Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum in Singapore is located at 288 South Bridge Road. It’s just two blocks away from the Sri Mariamman Temple.
