Buddha Tooth Relic Temple

I may not have seen any tooth inside Chinatown’s Buddha Tooth Relic Temple, but it didn’t matter. This was the most elaborate temple I’d stepped into in Singapore. The building was huge while inside I lost count of the number of Buddha statues that festooned the walls.

The focus of this temple was the future Buddha.

As I meandered around the outskirts of the main room, some forty or so worshippers sat in the centre chanting. Reading from a text, the temple filled with their calm recitation echoing off the overstated walls.
