  • This so go good and peaceful just on my sunny day. Amazing in some old way.
  • This was included in the half day Singapore tour and it was very interesting to understand and hear the background of this temple and what the 3 god's or goddesses in this temple signify. I enjoyed seeing this temple, feeling the serenity, really worth it.
