Top Ten Places of Worship



Description:

The multi-cultural make-up of Singapore is what really sets it apart from other places in the world. The population is predominantly Chinese, with significant numbers of Malays and Indians, and smaller groups of Eurasians and other ethnic groups. From a visitor’s point of view, this equates to a fascinating city to explore. It’s not uncommon to find a Chinese Temple, a Mosque, a Church and a Hindu Temple all within a 100m walk. A visit to the many varied places of worship is an excellent way to learn about the religion, culture and background of the devotees who worship there, and they are often architecturally worth a visit too.
