This temple is located at the end of Pagoda Street, the main thoroughfare of Singapore's Chinatown. The buildings are very ornately decorated and worth taking time to study. A wedding was getting underway as we arrived, so the complex was reasonably busy and we were denied access to one part. However this was more than compensated for by the bright... More

Very impressed with the temple. We were lucky that the temple wasn't overly crowded.within the temple are shrines to various gods. All very impressive and some of the scenes are quite grotesque

An amazing temple such intricate design from all angles. It is on the edge of China Town so has the vibrant feel of China Town about it. After having just seen a beautiful ceremony in the Buddah temple only metres away it was quite intriguing.

If you are visiting the place, my suggestion is to be there when they are doing ritual. If I'm not wrong ritual is done 3 times a day and it is worth to be part of it. There is no restriction and if you are there open your mind and place your prayer, you will be blessed.

A typical South Indian temple, like millions of them around the world. If you have never been to Hindu temples its worth a visit.

This place was such an oasis of calm on the edge of China town. Also a temple with worshippers, shoes left outside, legs best covered. Such a great pice of history. Free entry. Worth a visit and so close to China town.

Great Statues and fairly friendly people who are happy to open their religion to tourists. The only thing to remember is to take off your shoes before entering.

It is a Hindu temple used by immigrants from Nagapatman and Cuddalore in South India. The temple is dedicated to the goddess of healing epidemic, Mariamman. Is close to the Buddha Tooth Relic Templee and has a beautiful façade. We have to take off the shoes to enter.
