Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple

Dedicated to the Goddess of Mercy

Photo of Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple, , Downtown Singapore

What we say: 3.5 stars

The temple is dedicated to Kwan Im (the Goddess of Mercy) and people pray for good luck. Don't leave without getting your fortune told — shake the canister of divining sticks until one falls and its number corresponds to a printed fortune. The road outside the temple is pedestrianised and fills with flower sellers and palm readers. The opening hours are just a guideline as the temple stays open all night on auspicious dates like Chinese New Year. Photography is not permitted within the temple.
