Which are the major sects of Buddhism in Singapore? Which are these sects' main temples in Singapore?

  • I'm not sure if we allow such open-ended questions... we're really better equipped to deal with questions that have a single "right" answer... Feb 24 '15 at 5:33
  • I have edited the question so that it gets closer to having a single right answer. There is still some ambiguity as my question uses the terms "major" and "main." I hope that extent of ambiguity is acceptable.

You may want to try the following as I have been attended some events there too :

http://www.buddhistfellowship.org/cms/ - More to Theravada

Hope this helps. =)


According to Peter Harvey in An Introduction to Buddhism (second edition page 413)

43% of people in Singapore practice some form of Buddhism; mainly Chinese Mahayana but also some Thai Theravada or Japanese Soka Gakkai and more recently Tibetan Buddhism.

Hope that's of some interest.


There are Wikipedia articles for about 30 of the Buddhist temples in Singapore.
