The temple is very pretty and you will have plenty of good views or opportunities for taking pictures. The neighbourhood is not a place I would visit again for sure.

Striking features and only 400m from MRT. On the main drag so easy to find. Very pretty on the outside and very busy. I didn't make it inside as temple was shut 12-4 on a Thursday. Nice break from the shops!

Though built in the 1980s, this shrine is worth a short visit. The exterior depicts carved statues of deities and is quite elaborate and colourful. The interior bustles with worshippers depending on the day of your visit. The interior also depicts ornate statues of deities.

This was the first temple I had ever visited and I found it very interesting and colourful. It is a very busy place being used by locals. Life just went on around me as I took a lot of photos.

Very interesting temple, and the devotion of the people is amazing. Tourist go in and out, but that does not stop the prayers. The temple is very colourful and can't be missed. Excellent photo opportunities.

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.

I will try to be in early hours before going to work. Its location is right the middle of the Little india and it became a tourist spot as well.

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.
