This is possibly one of the prettiest temples I saw in Singapore. It was also one of the quieter options. Great for photos outside

It would be a pity to miss Leong San, this small Taoist temple. The translation of the name is The Mountain Dragon Temple. As the name already indicates, you can observe the dancing dragons and other creatures on the gate and on the ridge of the roof. It isn't the most important temple, but charming and you can have a...

Low key temple still actively used as a place of worship. Known as the Dragon temple due to the wonderful depictions of Dragons throughout' Lovely wooden beams too.

Don't miss this small temple in Little Indian. The name translates as Dragon Mountain Temple and its tiled roof ridge is decorated with animated dragons, flowers and chimera. Tiny but packed to the rafters with interesting items. In the back chamber you will see a section dedicated to the deceased. Closest MRT is Farrer Park.

Closest MRT is Farrer Park for this small but quite interesting Taoist temple. Located almost opposite the Buddha Gaya Temple, it's worth a stop as you explore the area. Visiting in the early afternoon today (Saturday) it wasn't so busy and there didn't seem to be any issues with photography.

One thing I love about Little India -- you can find a Hindu, Buddhist and Taoist temple within 1 block of each other. Stumbled across Leong San See while searching for Sakya Muni Budda Temple. Was immediately stopped in my tracks upon seeing it and had to investigate more closely. Unfortunately, it was already 6pm and gates were locked and... More

Walking along Race Course Road it could be easy to dismiss Leong San Temple set behind the red metal fence, despite Chinese clay dragons along its ridge cap and other ornate statues on the wings of the pagoda. The sign out the front of the temple tells the story that it was originally set up as a lodge to treat... More

This Taoist temple dates back to 1917 when it was intended as a shrine to Kuan Yin, the much-beloved Goddess of Mercy. It contains a forecourt, where devotees come to pray to the various statues for blessings of good fortune or good health for self and family. The less busy but more spacious courtyard behind the forecourt, accessed via a... More
