There is a very well known Kuan Yin (观音) Bodhisattva, the Goddess of Mercy's temple in Singapore and it is located in Waterloo Street. The name of the temple is Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple. It was built in 1884 and reconstructed in 1895. It is one of the oldest temples in Singapore. It was then reconstructed again in 1982 so as to increase their capacity for worshipers as there is an ever increasing number of worshipers over the years. Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple is also involved in health and educational organization through charity work.
Worshipers in Singapore believe that they will be blessed after praying to the Goddess of Mercy. Usually for most of the worshipers, they will purchase a pack of joss sticks and some fruits for offerings. After doing so, they will proceed to the temple and go on with their prayers. Worshipers were not only locals but foreign Chinese as well. Seems like its popularity is all over the region. Other than seeing worshipers, there are also stalls which sell offering items, and a makeshift booth by a fortune teller. Some passersby will actually sit down and ask for their fortune to be told.
If you are looking for some cultural exchange, this can be a good consideration.
