It's obviously Buddhist, judging by the flags. I'm going to say Daikoku-ji Temple, but I could very well be wrong. Beautiful, nevertheless.

It is Buddhist. You know what, now, where?

Of note, a pic of this building was in a recent Bon Appetite.

It's not in Japan.

It's Singapore. Buddha Tooth Relic Temple. FWIW, I found nothing with the Bon Appetit clue.

It is. Very much the Singaporean architectural style.

LOTS of really good food hawker stalls around it.

There was an article on Singapore a 4 or 5 issues back.

Carry on.

What a beautiful building! I've been away from the computer all day, so I have missed a lot here!

What is this? It is known by a couple of names, has a famous name (or names, if you really want to get technical) attached to it.
