This is a really beautiful temple in a uniquely Burmese style; both in terms of architecture and statuary. It's only a short walk from MRT Novena, which gives you the opportunity to check out Novena RC Church, Loong Fatt's bakery, and the Dr Sun Yat...More

This is a Burmese buddhist temple. There is a nice Buddha statue on the ground flooor and also another one on the second floor. There are some very intricate carvings and ornaments on the walls and ceiling. The temple is rather peaceful and well maintained.
