according to visitsingapore.com, there's one in bukit merah and another in toa payoh...
extracted from the website:
The most important day in the Buddist calendar, Vesak Day commemorates Buddha's attainment of spiritual enlightenment. In temples, monks melodiously chant holy sutras while devotees release captive birds as a mark of respect to all creatures and to gain merit. Watch these colourful festivities at the Thai Buddhist Temple at Jalan Bukit Merah and Lian Shan Shuang Lin Monastery in Toa Payoh."
being tourist attractions, my guess is that you're allowed to take pictures...
hope this helps!
