What we say: 3.5 stars

It's also known as the Temple of 1,000 Lights for the countless bulbs that surround its main idol: a 15 metre-tall, 300 ton-heavy, seated Buddha, which dwarfs the inter-faith group of gods around him.

The temple walls are adorned with colourful murals depicting Buddha's life and a huge mother-of-pearl replica of a Buddha footprint from Sri Lanka.

The temple is the centre of activities on Vesak Day, the anniversary of Buddha's enlightenment.
