Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple

Singapore is a food and shopping paradise. Singaporean loves looking for food and shopping and travelling. But we do find time for prayers.

The main religions are Islam, Taoism, Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism and Judaism.

Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple is a very famous temple in waterloo street. The temple is also involved in charity work, contributing to several health and educational organisations. For more information on the temple you can view wikipedia.

On auspicious date, the temple will be very crowded. Outside the temple were some vendors selling incense papers, josssticks and lotus flowers.

The lotus flower is a favourite as the goddess of mercy is always depicted standing inside the lotus flower.

A short video of the temple.

Thank you for showing us the temple

but have never been there on such an occasion.

Singapore is a great city that welcomes all religions, a proof of tolerance, so many religions in such a small state, it's beautiful.

Thanks for the beautiful tour ! It's funny that you have a Waterloo street, because I live in the real historical Waterloo in Belgium, where Napoleon lost his battle, lol !
