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.

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

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

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.

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.
