photoblog image Buddha Tooth Relic Museum during LNY

Buddha Tooth Relic Museum during LNY

Singapore's Chinatown. In the foreground is the Buddha Tooth Relic Museum with shophouses facing in front. Shophouses (as seen in the image) usually have shops on the ground floor and houses for the residents upstairs. It is not necessary that the shops and the living spaces belong to the same family. In the background are the high rises of Raffles Place.


This image was taken during the recent Lunar Year Celebrations at Chinatown.

Such a dramatic contrast between the buildings, Ayush. Well seen!
I love the light on the Museum - it's really lovely!
What an excellent view, Ayush, and I love how the modern buildings are almost monochrome and the foreground so rich.
Ayush Basu: A most astute observation Neil!
new meets old
I went to visit this place when I balik kampung for holiday last September. smile

I don't know Singapore Ayush, good to get a glimpse! This is a great POV, showing the variety of buildings in such close proximity - an excellent image!

Great juxtaposition of the modern and the traditional Auysh
A very good example of old and new Ayush.
An interesting mix of architecture of elegant old and not so individual 'international'
Great contrast between ancient and modern. Very nice capture!
An amazing contrast in architecture...best of the East meets the worst of the west grin
