Tse Tho Aum Temple

Sitting quietly next to the huge grand complex of Kong Mong San Phor Kark See aka Bright Temple, at 601 Sin Ming Drive, SG 575719 is the small but perfectly formed Buddhist temple of Tse Tho Aum.

To be honest we visited it by mistake looking for Bright Hill but I'm glad we came across this first and took a peek. 

Here there is a crematorium, columbarium, the final resting place of many Teochews in Singapore, and a large eating hall.

The car park itself is designed like a pagoda and the paintings on the eaves are very striking.

  1. Since when this place has become the final resting place of Singaporean Teochews? I have visited the columbarium and apparently there are more Cantonese than Teochew people who have their urns placed there. Some were even relocated from Peck San Theng
