Burmese Buddhist Temple

Local nameBurmese Buddhist Temple
LocationNovena, Singapore

Also called Maha Sasana Ramsi, this is the oldest Theravada temple in Singapore. This marvellous structure, which is also a national heritage site of Singapore, holds the largest white marble Buddha statue outside of Myanmar. If you want, you can get blessings from the monks residing here. Many events take place in this temple throughout the year, from Dhamma classes and various festivals to Chinese New Year celebrations.

Be sure to take off your shoes before entering the temple. Weekends tend to be less crowded than weekdays.

The temple is easily reachable by bus - at Toa Payoh Bus Interchange, hop on bus 139 or 145 and get off at the third stop (in front of Ramada Hotel). You will be guided by signs from there. You can also opt for using MRT - it's about a 10-minute walk from the Toa Payoh station.
