Poh Ming Tse Temple (PMT) reflects the contemporary modern Singapore while retaining our Chinese Mahayana roots. The bamboo decalcomania depicted on the screen wall at Poh Ming Tse Temple is inspired by the serenity of the traditional Chinese rice paper painting, signifying peace and tranquility that PMT offers to urban dwellers. The motif of the graphic was formed using the characters in "The Great Compassionate Mantra" or "Da Bei Zhou" (大悲咒) and the intent was to retain the Mahayana roots into reality with a spiritual touch. The mantra was created using 28,656 characters which comes from the repetition of the Mantra 69 times, with a bamboo image superimposed to the characters.
The curved glass surface which is reminiscent of a scroll softens the massiveness of the plane and the stiffness of the glass material. The sweeping uplifting pitched roof at the eave is the trademark of a traditional Chinese temple which the architecture retains yet simplifies.
Our facilities and activities cater to our modern lifestyle, and yet offer our devotees spiritual joy and peace of mind.
