A rather bizarre collection of statues and figures covering gods, demons and the story of Tripitaka - yes, the monk most of us remember from the "Monkey" TV series. Built by the brothers who brought Tiger Balm to the world, it seems to be suffering a little bit from neglect but it's free.

The fabled story of the Tiger Balm descendents the villa depicts not, but the stories of doing good deeds, being loyal, being honest, and of being pious are well put to life in statues and figurines. The entrance fee is nil and it is conveniently located near an MRT station.
