Singapore biggest monastery . A must to visit. Lot of Instagramable buddha and temple halls. Very delicious free flow hot free vegetarian noodle soups. Clean and quiet hall with incense burning. It not the oldest temple but worth a visit.

An amazing complex of buildings in a beautiful park built in the early 20th century. Easy to reach and worth to see. It is a working Buddhist monastery open for visitors and worship. Very clean and well maintained.
