Consecrated in 2008, Chinatown’s imposing Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum gets its curious name from the modest-looking object housed in a solid gold stupa on the fourth floor: a tooth said to be that of the Buddha, discovered in 1980 at a collapsed stupa in Myanmar. The relic can be seen twice daily from a public viewing gallery (only monks can enter the inner chamber where it resides). But more accessible relics await on the third floor, and exquisite artifacts and sculptures fill this dazzling sanctuary. Despite the crowds, BTRM is an excellent place for meditation and reflection. Don’t miss the roof, home to the Pagoda of Ten Thousand Buddhas (and the large prayer wheel inside) and a garden abloom with the temple’s signature flower, the Dendrobium Buddha Tooth orchid.
