Nestled in a housing estate in Toa Payoh is Singapore’s oldest Buddhist monastery, Lian Shan Shuang Lin Monastery. It is the only monastery in Singapore to be gazetted a national monument due to its historical value where its buildings are built with a unique blend of Fuzhou, Quanzhou, Zhangzhou & Chaozhou architectural style.
In Singapore, there are many temples which are predominantly Buddhist, Taoist or Hindus. A Burmese Buddhist temple is very rare. In fact, many locals don’t even knew it existed. The Maha Sasana Ramsi Burmese Buddhist Temple was built in 1875.
