This temple is famous for her Goddess of Mercy... It is very crowded during festive season.. Many Chinese comes here to ask favor from the Goddess and seemed most have their wish granted.

A great place close to Bughi street to see the religious practice of Singapore Chinese. The temple is dedicated to Kuan Yin and people come to pray and predict their fortune in interesting rituals. The temple is freely accessible, but no photographs inside.

This temple is just around the corner of Bugis and it is not far from Bugis Junction. During the weekdays, this temple will be full of visitors. They normally come here to offer their prayer and seek blessings. Next to it is a Hindu temple.

I have been here many times and each time I visit I buy her flowers and burn some joysticks before entering the temple. It is usually crowded but indeed a positive and powerful temple to visit.
