My favourite Buddhist temple is Buddha Tooth Relic Temple, at Chinatown. I like it because the it was based on Tang Dynasty architectural style, which has rich red color and majestic structure.  And the temple houses the tooth relic of a historical buddha, which makes the temple more magnificent and holy.

Week 4 Journal : Sri Mariamman Temple, Singapore

Sri_Mariamman_Temple_2

It was my first time getting so close to a Hindu temple, to which I have never been before.

It is interesting to know that there are many different ritual discipline to follow in the temple as well as its history where Sir Mariamman temple place a significant role of Hinduism in Singapore. And before this presentation, I had no idea what these intricate statues are on the top of gate. Now I can recognise some and made more sense to me religiously and aesthetically.
