Buddha Tooth Relic Temple in Singapore
The Buddha Tooth Relic Temple in Singapore was opened in 2007 to house a tooth retrieved from the funeral pyre of the Lord Buddha. The Buddha tooth relic was given to Singapore in 2002 and had previously been kept inside Singapore’s Golden Pagoda Temple. The relic was found in the ruins of a temple in Mruak-U in Myanmar in 1980. The Buddhist Church in Singapore had forged close links in Buddhists in Myanmar assisting in the construction of new temples in Myanmar and as a consequence of this relationship the religious authorities in Myanmar made a gift of the Buddha tooth relic to Singapore.
The Buddha Tooth Relic Temple is a 4 storey temple in Singapore’s Chinatown area. The temple also has a museum devoted to the history and culture of Buddhism. It’s free to visit the temple which is open every day from 07:00 to 19:00, although the museum and stupa where you can view the relic are only open from 09:00 to 18:00. The temple building itself is brilliantly designed and very beautiful. The architectural style is similar to temples from the North of China with design features reminiscent of those from the era of the Tang Dynasty. The choice of using Northern Chinese architecture in the design of the temple makes it stand out in an area where the older buildings were constructed in a style more closely associated with the architecture of Southern China.
