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.

Was surprised to see a temple of this magnitude outside India. The architecture was very similar to the temples found in India. Place was maintained very well. All the rituals performed were very close to what is followed in India. Must visit place in Singapore.

We didn't go inside the temple, but viewed from the bus tour as we passed. This was enough for us as we were on a tight time constraint. It's good to see as this is part of the diverse and multiracial Singapore.

I purchased the permit to take photos for 3 singapore dollars and I am certainly glad I did. This national monument filled my eyes with it's vibrant colors and carvings which covered many levels of the temple.. while the colors were vibrant like in most places I found it surreal. I think it's worth taking the time to discover what... More

This temple is set in Chinatown and is stunning in appearance, close to all the markets and restaurants in the area and is visually appealing, if you are in the area it is well worth the visit.

Very close the Chinatown MRT you mac not miss it. The exterior is stunning and free to look around inside. If you want to take photos you will need to pay a small fee of around 3 SGD. Also need to wear clothing that does not show your shoulders and bottoms below the knee. I am sure people an borrow... More

I came around the corner, and there it was, in all its glory. It is fantastic! Who cares about the religion? but as a spectical it is absolutely GREAT! - and really good fun, and so colorful. There are blue people, green people and some chap with an elephant trunk instead of a nose. When I was in India, my... More

This is one of the oldest Hindu temples in Singapore. Interestingly, this temple is in between a mosque and Buddhist temple along the same stretch of road. Entry is free but you have to fork out S$3 if you would like to take photographs. Footwear is not allowed in the temple and you need to cover up if you are... More

The Sri Mariamman Temple is the oldest Hindu temple in Singapore (constructed 1827) and is devoted to the mother Goddess. The structure is easily located in China Town and the complex is ornate and has many intricate murals. It is still a place of worship so strict dress codes apply, some areas are roped off and shoes must be removed... 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.
