In Singapore’s multicultural landscape, its residents’ various faiths coexist in harmony.  Home to around ten religions altogether, Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism and Christianity are considered the four principal religions. Visit country’s most significant religious sites such as the oldest Hindu temple which sits in Chinatown, the most important temple of the Hokkien community, a mosque that was a stopover on the pilgrimage route, and the oldest Christian church which was opened by the Armenian community.

Highlights

  • Admire the four-story Buddha Tooth Relic Temple, built to house the sacred tooth of Buddha
  • Visit the restored Chijmes Hall, a Gothic Revival designed chapel built in 1855
  • See Masjid Sultan, an iconic mosque in Kampong Glam, pivotal to the Muslim community
     

Day-to-Day

Day 1 Singapore

Arrive at Changi Airport and meet your guide for your private transfer to your hotel. Relax and unwind from your flight for the rest of the day.

Day 2 Singapore

Start in Chinatown, home to the prominent Chinese temples of Thian Hock Keng and Buddha Tooth Relic Temple as well as Sri Mariamman Temple, the oldest Hindu temple in Singapore. At the Nagore Dargah Heritage Center, learn about the pioneers of country’s Indian-Muslim community who first built a shrine at the site in the early 1800’s to give thanks for safe passage to Singapore. See the beautiful Chijmes Hall, lovingly designed with stained-glass windows imported from Belgium, a five-story spire, and unique impressions of tropical flora and birds on the 648 column capitals. At the Malay enclave of Kampong Glam, admire the beautiful Sultan Mosque and its massive golden domes, formerly the royal mosque of the Sultan of Johor. In the past, this significant mosque was a stopover for Muslim pilgrims in the region on their pilgrimage to Mecca. Visit the oldest Christian church in Singapore and national monument, the Armenian Church, completed in 1835. The Armenians were among the earliest merchants and traders to arrive in the country after it was established as a trading port and the church was the spiritual home of the influential community.
