Free admission, and so much going on. Really worth a visit, plus there is a Thai temple across the road with a large reclining buddha.

We went to visit the reclining Buddha opposite and discover this Burmese temple. This temple is elegantly done. The ceiling is carved beautifully in wood. The temple itself is very cooling. The style is very different from the Thai temple opposite which seems to be quiet bling bling and in gold colour. This is more down to earth. Like any... More

Bus 10, 101, 102, 104 & 304 can reach this place. Get off at Jalan Burma. I asked the bus driver to tell me when we arrive the bus stop. From the bus stop it's only a short walk to reach this temple. Nice place to visit together with Wat Chaiyamangkalaram (Thai temple opposite road). 45 min - 1 hour... More

Worth stopping for a quick look around as was very atmospheric and interesting. There was a Chinese New Year dragon display which was good to see so if visiting over CNY check if there are any displays as was good to see. There is a Thai Buddhist temple opposite so could easily visit both in one trip.

Nice statue of the goddess, for culture photography lover, must visit this temple for a touch of blessing and a shot of colors. try to check the event calendar for big event, but if you prefer for praying, come during quiet and not a holiday season.

We stumbled across this temple by chance after visiting shopping malls and walking along the road to explore a little. Very peaceful mini oasis. Great way to spend an hour drifting through the different buildings, very ornate and serene. Keep an eye out for the turtle pond tucked away.

Was impressed by the relaxed nature of this attraction and the distinct feeling that you were in an oasis in the middle of a busy city. Pleasantly surprised by the lack of retail in this attraction in comparison to other religious sites as well as the freedom to roam wherever without the feeling that you were being monitored as was...
