Nice, clean and well maintained temple. LIke all HIndu temples, you are required to leave your shoes outside. entry is free and photography is allowed. Anyone can come to offer prayers to the deities. The priests are very kind and humble.

Hadn't been inside a temple like this before, really enjoyed the experience and I thank the congregation/members for opening the temple to the public. Treat it with reverence, it is someone else's place of worship, bare feet are required.

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!

I really enjoyed this temple, it has many different shrines inside and beautiful detail on the outside.

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
