Remember to remove your shoes before entering. There is a lot of activity of the devotees. Interesting to be an observer. It was a fairly hot day for us and the heat in the temple did detract from the experience.

Really interesting temple built over 150 years ago. The devotees are very helpful and friendly and happy to explain the various parts on the temple of which they are so rightly proud. Couple this with a walk through the markets of Little India.

I guess I've spent too much time visiting temples in India and so I'm perhaps not as impressed by the temples in Singapore as I might otherwise be. This one is certainly attractive, with plenty of attention to detail in the statue work, and particularly at the main entrance. If you have a powerful camera it's worth bringing it along... More

This temple is beutiful and there is a lot to see inside. You are allowed to take pictures inside. Do not forget to take off your shoes before entering the temple.

Stumbled upon this temple whilst out exploring Little India, and I'm very glad I did. This temple was a marvellous little sanctuary for the spirit, it was breathtaking how big and beautiful it was. I'm glad I got the chance to visit!

This is a very interesting temple. It is quite large with several rooms and an outside area to explore. As with all Hindu temples you have to remove your shoes before entering. It was filled with people all participating in various rituals. There were just a handful of what looked like tourists. There were some quite disturbing statues and I... More

Staying in Little India

Neighborhood Profile
Little India
With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander past traditional barbershops while local residents in brightly colored saris patronize retailers from decades past. Peruse streets lined with colorful shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge. Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts and take in the stalls selling bright flowers, fabrics, and spices. At the 24-hour, four-level Mustafa Shopping Center, you can shop through the night and find everything from pharmacy and grocery items to Bollywood DVDs and diamond necklaces. Singapore’s Little India offers a colorful, lively taste of the subcontinent and is well worth the visit.
