We came here with a guide who thoroughly explained what every statue shown stands for. You can come into this beautiful temple and take (no flash) pictures while other people are praying in the temple at the same time and priests walk around. This makes it all very authentic. Recommended!

The outside figures are smaller than expected from the photos but the inside is amazing. This is authentic stuff and make sure you are wearing the right clothing and take your shoes off. You need to respect the people praying and make sure you do not stray into areas you should not go. A busy place with music playing and... More

We went there to see what a hindu temple looks like. And we are amazed with the "design" of the temple and how hinhu's pray and venerate their gods.

If you are curious and had never visited a Hindu Temple, this is a visitor friendly one to visit. Just note the dress code of no shorts & sexy clothings (for the ladies).

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!

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.
