Temple on Bright Hill


I love shooting in places of Chinese culture, one of my favourite places is a temple located at Sin Ming Avenue. The name of the temple is Bright Hill Temple (Kong Meng San Phor Kark), located at 88, Bright Hill Drive. Bright Hill Temple is the largest Buddhist monastery in Singapore, built in the 1920s by the late Venerable Zhuan Dao, a response of him, which is providing a proper accommodation for monks as the assistance of their practicing of Dharma without disturbance.

It is a well-known temple for Singaporeans for both its amazing architectural designs and intricate statues of Buddha and Bodhisattve. The teaching of Buddha has been continually promoted by the temple, which brings Buddhists closer to Dharma for almost 90 years. Information on the teachings have been broadcast to the public through talks sessions and events. This is a place for devotees who want to get a taste of an enriching spiritual experience. This is a great and peaceful place for shooting, mini statues of cute little monks are found around the temple (as you can see from the photos), well designed and built buildings, monks (before you shoot, probably ask them for permission), friendly devotees, and many more.

So come on down to Bright Hill Temple, one thing to take note of is your attire, as it is a Buddhist temple, visitors are reminded to dress modestly (no shorts and tank tops), other than that, have fun shooting there!
