Buddha Tooth Relic Temple & Museum

The main entrance to the Temple is on South Bridge Road, Chinatown.

A Buddhist Temple, the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple & Museum is a living cultural monument in the heart of Chinatown featuring exhibitions relating to various facets of religious arts and culture of Singapore.
















The Fourth level houses what Buddhist leaders regard as the Sacred Buddha Tooth Relic in a Stupa composed of 320kg of gold donated by devotees. The chamber’s curtain will be raised twice a day for all in the public area to view the inner chamber and the Sangha. The Sangha will then begin their blessing ceremony. The chamber’s curtain will be lowered after the ceremony.
