Singapore’s oldest Hindu temple is also one of the most popular thanks to its proximity to Chinatown and its colorful exterior. Admission is free, though a donation is requested of those taking photographs. An annual fire-walking ceremony is held here every October or November.

Small but rich temple. It is extremely interesting to see people from different culture observe theiri religion. You really fell into an Indinan environment. Very good

The Sri Mariammam Temple checks every box for a tourist attraction, except for lack of information about the many different deities inside. It's very colorful facade with the myriad of statutes is immediately eye catching and interesting. Inside the temple compound, it is just as vibrantly colorful, garlands of flowers hang from the ceilings and adorn resident deities in the... More

Very nice colourful facade but not m CH else to see. The interior was quite plain. I think Hindu temples are more on the outside than in.

only in Singapore, can you find a church, mosque, Hindu & Chinese temples on the same street. good way to view & understand this unique culture of the 4 major races in Singapore. Admission is free too. just dress up i.e. no shorts, mini skirts, sleeveless.

You will be shock with the number of statues here. I try to count it back then and the caretaker was laughing at me. A very cool place to take a lovely picture :)

Free entrance but please take off your shoes before you go in and look for the signs (they are often not very obvious) that asks tourists not to enter certain scared areas. Just be respectful. We were very lucky there was a wedding going on while we were at the Sri Mariamman Temple made it very colorful and we even... More

free entrance, small but lovely temple. close to china town MRT and on the way to the maxwell hawker eatery. since singapore is so hot and you have to cover up to enter the temple, bring a small cardigan to throw over your shoulders and just use the free long skirt they provide to cover your legs while there. you...

These are usually pretty similar to each other. But if you are particularly interested in Hindu culture or have never seen one, it is something that shouldn't be missed. A intricately caved brightly colored piece of architecture. A must see if you are in Singapore, and no excuse not to if find yourself in Chinatown.

What authority does one have to review a temple? or a church or a synagogue for that matter - I'll simply recount my experience. Sri Mariamman Temple in China Town is a major tourist attraction, but to me it's more than that. It's a symbol of Singapore's tolerance to different cultural themes, which is also the reason the world is... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colorful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
