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.

This temple is beautiful, inside and out. We spent a lot of time exploring Singapore and finding as many mosques and temples as we could. We took a good look round this one and it is fantastic - the artwork in the statues is amazing. You aren't allowed in in Shorts, however there are overskirts to wear to hide your... More

Great feel for the place and the views from outside were interesting. Only thing is that you need to have shorts over the knee to get in which one hadn't picked up from prior reading of the reviews.

Although this is the most well-known Hindu temple in Singapore (I assume so because it's the oldest Hindu temple here), I found it pretty "empty" inside both in terms of structures and such and in terms of people; the only buildings inside are the Wedding Hall with paintings on the ceiling right inside the entrance gate and the tomb (or...

When I was there not much was going on, however I believe it must be great when there is a ceremony because it's really huge inside and very centrally located.

When in Singapore, how nice you feel if you are an Indian and you get to go to a temple. Of course, there are many Indians. There is Little India, the Mustafa, Dhobighat and all. But still, you feel proud when Sri Mariamman Temple makes you feel that you are in India. Visit the temple. We did go there.

A Hindu temple in China, stuck between mosque and a Chinese Buddhist temple. Now this is in my opinion the real attraction. Three world religions existing side by side, I hope they do so in harmony.

Please make sure to visit this ancient temple built in 1827. During navavrathri festival days Amman is worshipped for Nine days. You have to buy tickets for camera. The temple is very well maintained. It's located in China Town.

The oldest Hindu temple, Sri Mariamman Temple at 244 South Bridge Road is located in close proximity with the Buddhist Relic Temple at Sago Lane and adjacent to one of the oldest mosques, Masjid Jamek at Mosque Street. The three religious institutions retain their own sense of identity and each contribute to the dynamic cultural diversity along this same stretch... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
