The Buddha Tooth Relic Temple in Singapore's Chinatown (A visit on May 2nd 2009)
An 8 part excerpt image gallery will be unveiled here in gradual parts. The only regret is that the photography of the actual Buddha's Tooth and Other Relics were prohibited. Otherwise, the Temple was a museum to fabulous Buddhist iconography, especially Tang Dynasty (very strong likeness to Japanese Buddhist art) being a major theme. The Microsoft Picture Viewer was used to brighten up/enhance certain pics that were dark due to prohibited flash photography in certain parts of the exhibition. A link to them: http://www.btrts.org.sg/
