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.

I have visited a number of times over the years. Sarongs are available for those who have clothing that is too short. Worth a visit.

Only viewed from the outside as the floor inside looked decidedly wet and mucky, and as you had to remove your shoes and leave them outside we were not certain that we’d return to find our new trainers replaced by a pair of non-fitting flip flops! Besides which we were not certain how much we would see as there was... More

Beyond the ornament and distracting sculpture, the main building of the Sri Marianmman Temple is comprised of a progression of nicely proportioned spaces entered directly from the street. We enjoyed walking through the surrounding courtyards with unique shapes created by artfully positioning the temple at an angle on its rectangular site.

It is a very colorful place. Not much to do but look at the statues. But it is a beautiful place and a nice way to waste some time.

Interestingly this Hindu temple is located in Chinatown at the end of Pagoda street. It's not really that exciting inside (especially if you're familiar with temples in India proper) but it's still worth a visit to get a taste of Hinduism in Singapore. Easily accessible from Chinatown mrt.

This temple has an awesome design which is "over-the-top", but still awesome. Mandatory visit! I did not see the inside because it was closed to public that day.

Located in pagoda street in chinatown. Beautiful temple with lots of colorful ornaments and lovely interiors. Footwear are not permitted inside. You also have to pay S$3 to take pictures. Entrance to the temple is free

Maybe it wasn't the right moment for us or maybe it just wasn't the right time to visit the temple (late morning), but we were expecting something more. We payed the donation for taking photos. We were disappointed we couldn't access all the places as tourists (since we didn't really see an apparent reason for it). We preferred the Sri... More
