culture

Located on the top of a small hill in the Western part of Singapore is a temple established in 1954, as a memorial for those who lost their lives during the Battle of Pasir Panjang during the Second World War. It is the first religious building in Singapore to integrate eco-friendly features after its reconstruction in 2003.

Make a trek up the short slope to see 100 gold Buddhas, and spin some of the 108 turning bells as you walk past. Ringing the bells evokes wisdom, shows compassion, and symbolises good luck & spirituality. In the temple, join a Buddhist group for a brief Sutra chanting session. A temple tour will then showcase the solar energy panels and wind turbines that supply the building with heating and electricity.
On Sundays, enjoy a simple and nutritious vegetarian lunch with local worshippers. Before heading back, we will make a brief stopover at the Henderson Waves, the highest pedestrian bridge in Singapore! This artistic 36-metre tall, 274- metre bridge has a distinctive wave-like structure consisting of a series of 7 undulating curved “ribs”. A stunning structure with even more stunning views!
