As you walk through the bright, joyous streets of China Town, you turn a corner and suddenly come across this most beautiful Hindu Temple. So, do not be taken by surprise and make sure that you have taken note of which street to go down in advance. It is well worth a visit. It's beautifully crafted statues have to be... More

In reality in not so beautiful. And I felt there unwelcome. Maybe with a professional guidance, if i would have had somebody to explain me about temple, ceremonies and meanings, i could say it was a great experience. But it was not.

This temple is located in Little India. It is Must-to-see attraction in Singapore. I was there during the service and all place was vibrating. Building is very well preserved.

Very colourful, restoration work was being carried out inside when we went. Had been past many times but this time we went inside, extremely beautiful and right at the edge of Chinatown. Shoes must be left outside - we had no problem with this.

A quick stop at this temple was part of a tour provided by our hotel and, sadly, there wasn't enough time to go inside. Judging by the photo's on Tripadvisor from other visitors I think I would have enjoyed the inside even more than the outside ....... the whole place is a riot of colour! But it goes without saying...

Surrounding the temple there are many shop selling flower, incense for pray & sarry (traditional India cloth). I really like watching their activity inside the temple and the... More

I found the temple to be in a grubby area and didn't feel welcome to go inside, shoes everywhere on the footpath outside and the surrounding Indian market area had pushy sales people which made it hard to browse, I made sure to give it a wide berth when walking from China town to Singapore CBD.
