the oil burning in the Buddhist Temple

One of the temples of Singapore is the Sakya Muni Buddha Gaya Temple, more commonly known as Temple of 1000 Lights.

The temple was founded by a Thai monk, Vutthisasara, and the Thai influences are obvious.

The building stands taller than many Chinese temples and there is no pagoda roof. However,

Chinese influences are present in the bright colour schemes. Inside is an incredible 15-metre high, 300-ton statue of Buddha, painted in a yellow robe.

Will upload a blog soon on my visit to the Temple yesterday - Saturday October 09 2010.
