Kong Meng San Phor Kark See Monastery, Bright Hill, Singapore

Kong Meng San Phor Kark See Monastery, is a Buddhist monastery located at Bright Hill Road, Singapore. Like all Buddhist monasteries it emanates peace and tranquility. Just looking at the buddha so tall and big was immensely humbling. There are a lot of stories that I read about the religious aspects of the many hands of the Buddha and a lot of heads. But they are stories that you can find just googling them. For me it was the peace and the tranquility and a really happy place that I took with me.

I am not a very religious nor a ritualistic person……. only that religion has brought peace to me at every stance in life. I don’t care what kind of religious place it is or which religion it belongs to…… just the essence of peace that any and all of these places give me is what I look for. Its like the positive energies of 100s and 1000s of people put together that I get there and what I bring back with me from every such visit. It gives me tremendous strength.

This Buddhist monastery is the home for many Buddhist monks and they pray and live here. It also houses a learning center which teaches you all about the Buddhist religion. The architecture is essentially Chinese. It reminds me of the forbidden city 😀 . atleast of the pics and serials that I have seen of it. I haven’t been there yet but may be someday…… love the stories associated with it.

I spent a whole day there. Also I met a lot of very nice people. They are so friendly and so accepting.  I couldn’t decide on the pics so I collaged them.

    Ranu, what a beautiful temple. I appreciate your sharing your thoughts. I, too, leave sites such as this with a feeling of peace and serenity, regardless of the<br />religion. In the past two years, I&#39;ve been privileged to spend 15 months in India, with all its incredible Hindu temples, many of which are such works of art as well as<br />places of worship. <br /><br />My ruby post is a
