Kong Meng San Phor Kark See Monastery

The tourism tagline of Singapore says, 'Uniquely Singapore'. The tagline is very appropriate given the fact that it is a nation, state, capital, city , all combined into one. Also, visitors always find something new to explore in this small country. Buddhist tourists, too, find a whole lot of attractions in store for them when they visit this beautiful country.

Having reached Singapore, if you are wondering where to start off your Buddhist trip from, then here's a clue. Singapore has a number of Buddhist temples and monasteries that are worthvisiting.

Amongst these famous Buddhist temples and monasteries are the Kong Meng San Pho Kark See Monastery, Sakya Muni Buddha Gaya Temple, Siong Lim Temple and Thian Hock Keng Temple.
