Daily Post Photo Challenge: Vivid

In the heart of Singapore’s Chinatown sits the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple. Completed only in 2007 and officially launched on Vesak Day that year, it is specially designed based on the Tang Dynasty architectural style and the Buddhist Mandala, a chart or symbol of a religion’s universe.

It is said to hold sacred artifacts of Buddha in its Museum on the 3rd level and a giant stupa made from 320kgs of gold, 234 of which were donated by devotees.
