It's been a few years since our last visit. It was going through renovation and rebuilding then. This temple has more than 100 years of deep history and the design is absolutely authentic original design from China. We visited on the 3rd day of Chinese...More

It is a must-see for tourists or Singaporeans looking to find a place deep in history (more than 100-year-old Buddhist Temple). It reminds me of a typical Buddhist or chinese house in old China when I visited Beijing/Shanghai. But to find a temple like this...More

The temple is located just beside an expressway and if one is gonna take public transport to the temple, it's best advised to take feeder service from Toa Payoh Bus Interchange where you can check which "bus number" to take. My usual route would take...More

The architecture of this temple is impressive compared to other small temples in this tiny state. The design and decorations are superb coordinated even the gardens. But it is not worth to come unless you unready saw all major temples in city centre but still...More

Beautifully restored Chinese temple with ornate gilded statues, architecture, pagoda, and clipped bonsai trees in the courtyard. Peaceful place to take a break from the city, although the traffic is never far away. To get there we took the MRT to Toa Payoh, and then...More

Lian Shan Shuang Lin Monastery is one of the oldest and the most beautiful Buddhist temples in Singapore. It's quite large so may take a couple of hours to explore but well worth the time!
