This is a highly decorative temple, elegantly designed reflecting religious stories. You need a tour guide to explain the stories behind religious figures. This place is a highlight of my visit.

The moment I stepped inside the temple I was in awe, amazingly beautiful decorative details and visitors are welcome during worship aswell. I visited some of the other temples in Singapore and this was by far the most amazing. I could have stayed there for hours, felt very lucky to see it.

This is the best Hindu temple to which I've been. In the morning the guilded facade shimmers in the sun. Not large, but very fine in its detailng both inside and out. Aweinspiring, even for the secular!

I was in a taxi driving past when I saw this building. I didn't even know it was a temple but got the driver to stop so I could go back and have a look. Sadly it seems to be closed for most of the afternoon, according to a local, so I could only look from outside.

Beautiful temple in the middle of Little India. Architecture is amazing especially very detailed sculptures of Hindu gods. We had to take off our shoes before entering the temple. It was amazing to see people praying inside and bringing food offerings.

I visited this temple on an organised tour and was blown away by all the statues and rooftop artistry. Truly amazing. I would highly recommend a trip to this temple. Its less busy that the hindu temple in China town and was very welcoming.

This temple is a very old one in Singapore. It was a new year day for south Indians and this temple was full of devotees on 26th April 2015 when we visited it in the morning hours. Still the crowed was moving orderly for blessings of the God. There are several small temples of various Hindu Gods in the premises,... 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.
