Chinese temple that is only a short stroll from the Sri Krishnan Temple. It seemed to me that Chinese and Hindu worshippers frequent both temples. Dating to 1884 and dedicated to the god, Guan Yin, the Chinese goddess of mercy. Other Chinese deities are stand behind Guan Yin or worshipped in various locations around the courtyard. The present temple was built in 1982 and is of very ornate Chinese architecture style. The incense urn is located at the front of the building, and I didn't see any lighted candles in the interior. I was invited to try my luck with the divining sticks but demurred.
Worthwhile strolling down Waterloo Street and visiting both temples.

A famous place of worship for Singaporeans. Been to this temple when I was much younger and it continues to be a very revered temple in Singapore.

It is the general feel of the area that enhances this place. Numerous street stallholders, well-ordered and well-stocked, made us feel quite relaxed.

The Kuan Yin Thong Hood Cho temple (Buddhist faith named after Kuan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy) is right next door to South East Asia Hotel where I stayed and every time I walked past or looked out my window it was alive with worshippers and nearby hawkers selling joss sticks. It’s worth a visit (free entry or donation) but no photos inside (as I discovered after the fact). The Temple is right on a bustling pedestrian mall with markets, shops, hawker centres (Waterloo St Food Centre),Albert Centre & Bugis+ nearby. The closest train station (walking distance) is Bugis.

When we went we found the temple was very busy and the stall holders outside were selling the lotus flowers and joss sticks that the worshippers were buying to take in to the temple.
Very interesting temple and well worth a visit. Next door to the lovely Hindu temple.

It was located in Waterloo street which was very near the MRT station so it was very easy to get there. I was there a day before Chinese new year so there were many people praying there. Outside, they sold things for Chinese new year, flowers and many things to bring inside to worship. It made the whole street look very colorful and lively. The temple was beautiful although it was simple. There were also many people there offer tours and I had no idea why.

This temple is visited by local and tourists and always crowded. It is good to give thank for the good things that happened/ going to happen in our life and pray for good health, career and children etc.
There are vendors outside the temple selling flowers, joss sticks for offerings. Some people will also meditate/ Chant prayed in this temple.
Highly recommended but the tourists need to be respectful of the people praying there.

This is a beautiful temple situated at Bugis. Lots if local and nearby tourists travel here to do their prayers and offerings to the Goddess of Mercy.

Plenty of stalls outside selling beautifully arranged flowers or bouquets. Worshippers are organized thus it is easy if you just plan for a visit.

No photography is allowed though inside the chambers
