Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and MuseumFree: All time

The Buddha Tooth Relic Temple is a Buddhist temple located in the Chinatown of Singapore. As the name suggested, the temple is famous for its alleged tooth from Siddharta Gautama, the founder of Buddhism. It is claimed that the relic of Buddha from which it gains its name was found in 1980 in a collapsed stupa in Myanmar. The temple design is based on the Tang dynasty architectural style. Since opening, the temple has become a popular attraction within Chinatown. Simple vegetarian fare is served in the basement of the temple, though donations are accepted.
