A place to worship for Tamil people. This temple is same like temples of South India. A great artistic work is done by the artist to build this temple. This temple depicts pure south Indian culture. It is must to visit place if you want to experience India in singapore

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

An absolutely fascinating insight into the Hindu religion and a "must do" for any trip to Singapore. Make sure it is combined with some sort of food experience from the many nearby options!
