Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum

This is the Temple that contains a Buddha relic and it was officially open on Vesak Day on 31 May 2007. It is located in Chinatown at Sago Lane.
Look at the very intricate carving of dragons on the plaque above the main door.The ferocious image wards off evil. About 83 Japanese temple bells are hung on the roofs of this temple and each has a unique chime. What beautiful music will pervade the air when the wind blows.
Right at the top of the temple is this golden pagoda-like structure on top of which is a crystal ball. Crystal balls like these radiate positive energy from the roof of the temple.

At the roof level of the temple which is 5-storey high, there are many lovely orchids surrounding the giant prayer wheel that was caste by a Japanese master.
