The Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum (BTRTM) was founded in 2002 and situated at the cultural Chinatown. Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum established the Buddhist Culture Museum, with the mission to collect, research and exhibit Buddhist artifacts from Asia region to encourage deeper understanding of Buddhism.

Reinvigorate your spiritual energy and faith at The Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum. The BTRTS building was conceptualized and with designs incorporating the best of Tang Dynasty and the Buddhist Mandala. There are four storeys on top of a basement, mezzanine and roof, housing an impressive collection of beautiful handcrafted Buddhist statues, artifacts, religious art pieces and of course the Sacred Buddha Tooth. Touring around, you’ll learn about the life story of Buddha Sakyamuni, the profound meaning of His Teachings, and discover the rich history and culture of Buddhism.

To have a deeper insight into Buddhism, feel free to browse through a huge collection of Buddhist publications at the Aranya Reference Library. Don’t forget to bring home a meaningful souvenir or gifts for your loved ones from the exclusive Buddhist Cultural Shop.

Remember to wear appropriate attire to show respect; no bare backs, off-shoulders, shorts, mini-skirts, etc.
