This is a really beautiful temple in a uniquely Burmese style; both in terms of architecture and statuary. It's only a short walk from MRT Novena, which gives you the opportunity to check out Novena RC Church, Loong Fatt's bakery, and the Dr Sun Yat...More

This is a Burmese buddhist temple. There is a nice Buddha statue on the ground flooor and also another one on the second floor. There are some very intricate carvings and ornaments on the walls and ceiling. The temple is rather peaceful and well maintained.

There are lots of temples in Singapore. This is the only Burmese Buddhist Temple here (from my best knowledge). It's visible from the highway (PIE, Toa Payoh exit). Serene, generally quiet (it's beside a highway so traffic noise is expected). This temple is beside Sun...More

Also known as Singapore Burmese Buddhist Temple. One and only Burmese Temple in Singapore. Temple is located off Balestier Road. Visited this morning. There's many Burmese and local devotees gathered and made their offerings to Buddha in the temple. Peaceful and quiet place.
