I have been here many times and each time I visit I buy her flowers and burn some joysticks before entering the temple. It is usually crowded but indeed a positive and powerful temple to visit.

Throbbing with people celebrating the Chinese new year even though it's not for another 2 or 3 weeks. Lots of interesting shops around where you'll get a better level of tourist purchases.

An attraction in Singapore. Always crowded during the weekends. People come from far places to seek for a blessed year.

Regardless of whether you have a faith, or what faith you might follow, this is an interesting place to visit. It has a constant stream of devotees taking time out of their day, to offer prayers and refocus.
