Singapore is best known for its futuristic architecture, but the modern and new aren’t the only reason to visit. Singapore’s temples are also top of the line, and here’s a couple you should consider checking out.
Buddha Tooth Relic Temple
This Buddhist temple in Singapore’s Chinatown district has been built in the Tang dynasty style, and it looks truly magical. It was built to house the tooth relic that allegedly belongs to the historical Buddha.
Sri Mariamman Temple
Singapore is home to several Hindu temples, but this is the oldest and the most impressive one. It was built in 1827 in the Dravidian style and its entrance tower decorated with colorful figures of deities is the temple’s most prominent feature.
Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple
Another Hindu temple in Singapore bears several similarities to the Sri Mariamman Temple. It was built in 1855, and it’s instantly recognizable thanks to its pyramid-shaped tower, ornately decorated in a similar way as the previous Hindu temple.
