Chinese Buddhists also light joss sticks from the Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple and join in with locals and visitors by rating this temple the harmonious symbol of a multi-religious and multi-cultural society in Singapore.
Since it is a strongly multi-religion temple, the management of the temple decided to pay tribute to the Goddess of Mercy, Guan Yin and erected an altar within the grounds of the temple. This was done in order to receive continued blessings for the Goddess for the Sri Krishnan Temple.
