on a busy road but as soon as you take your shoes off and walk through the main doors you are transported into an oasis of calm. Monks going about their business and people praying … a truly beautiful building. a fabulous memory of Singapore I loved it! One of the highlights of my trip!

Very close to Mustafa - walkable distance/ Avoid evenings though, as it can be very crowded. Eating places are nearby Mustafa. Lots of buses plying from that road towards north, Close to Farrer Park MRT

Links below show its location: http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=1.315240&lon=103.858062&z=18&m=m https://maps.google.com/maps?q=sri+vadapathira+temple&ie=UTF-8&ei=fAfXUuLrFKrwyAGx9ID4Cw&ved=0CAgQ_AUoAg It may be of more interest to you if you're Hindu, or interested in temple architecture and design. Beyond that, it's part of the heritage assets of the Serangoon Road area.

We visited on a Saturday morning, so got to observe worshippers visiting the temple, which was quite crowded. The colorful statuary and decoration of the temple was quite elaborate in this centrally located Little India landmark.
