Visit to Bright Hill Temple

Here are some photos of my recent visit to Bright Hill Temple in Singapore. This temple is said to be designed by the late Wu-chang Sect Feng Shui Master, Venerable Hong Choon, who was the monastery's abbot from 1947.

The memorial stupa of Venerable Hong Choon

The room that Venerable Hong Choon used to stay. Now it is made into an administrative office of the temple.

Venerable Hong Choon's tablet is located here for visitors to offer obeisance to.

The inside view: His tablet and life-size statue.

Notice the deliberate tilting of its entrance in accordance to San Yuan Feng Shui principles.
