Really nice, traditional Indian temple. It is located in a very good spot, easily accessible. The paint on the roof has gone - so the photo in the tripadvisor is not the exact representation. Lots of deities inside. They offer food and free lunch on...More

Absolutely fascinating place. Tourists are welcomed and for a small fee you are allowed to take pics inside the temple. Beautiful imageries inside.

A must visit in Chinatown Singapore. The architecture alone on the outside is visually stunning with all the colours. Maintained really well. Modest dress is required if entering the temple so not “western” summer clothes such as singlets or shorts.

I went in for dushera celebrations there , they had Navarathri celebrations the whole temple was decorated with flowers and lights , there were rituals being performed , and it’s not too crowded so it makes it worth a visit when ur in Singapore

Pretty sure I read about this temple in my high school text book. Fire walkers on certain days in October. Intricate sculptures and carvings. Very colourful. We didn’t stay long as we are not devotees. Please remember to wear attire below the knees and respect...More

It is an old historical temple in the temple street in China town. It was built in the 1800s and was redeveloped recently. Take off your shoes in front of the temple.

Honesty, the worse and most filthy temple we came across in Singapore. Everything was blocked off except for a small roped part near the entrance. Everything seemed run down and dirty. Don't waste your time here!

Hi all, I've noticed, from photos on the net, that outside the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple in Smith Street that there is a queue of empty trishaws winding around the court... are these for hire? We want to visit the temple and also Trengganu Street market and Smith Street food stalls and go on to the Sri Mariamman Temple and Jamae Mosque then up Temple Street... is this a possibility in the trishaws... we would be willing to hire two of them for a couple of hours each. I would be...More

SRI Mariamman Temple (3 Replies)
Is this temple open to the public? I did not find any current reviews or articles on it. How far is it from Grand Palace?

Response fromCunningMcFar|
yes, open to the public, no photos inside, small but very lively and colorful in and around the temple. Good cheap Thai food across the street at Krua Aroy-Aroy. It is located on Th. Silom, near Soi 22. From Grand Palace, board the southbound Chao Phraya Express boat at Tha Chang Pier and exit at Central Pier, pretty easy walk from the pier down to Soi 22

Thank you @KeithT_sg for your suggestions and links. I had not thought about the order. Thanks for sorting it. Would like to know if i would be able to walk the helix ridge that night along with the other attractions mentioned. How long would it take? Will consider Fort Siloso. And skywalk in sentosa? And i am planning to rework the itinerary adding buddha temple along with mariamman temple.
