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.

Hindu temple, right next to Chinatown, not far from MRT. You can go in, just remove your shoes first. Free entry, good place to sit and have some time out. There was a ceremony when we visited. It is only small so not a lot of room but worth a look if you are there. I really enjoyed this temple.

One of the oldest Hindu temple in Singapore, right in the China town center. Decorations is colorful and beautiful, lucky for us there is a ceremonial when we go there. It is worth for a quick 10 minutes visit and take some pictures.

The Sri Mariamman Temple is a nice looking temple and a pleasant place to visit, but it is rather small and isn’t full of awe inspiring architecture or religious wares. Being in China Town is easy to get to and from. You will be required to remove your shoes prior to entry and they are kept outside the front door,... More

This is one of the main temples in Singapore. Located at Chinatown. Entry is free. Be respectful and don't wear any shoes into the temple. There's signs to remind you to do that in front of the temple. There's a lot of colour and statues that decorated around the whole temple. It only takes a little time to make your... More

It's a lovely temple which you may visit in Chinatown. Its colours are amazing. Take off your shoes and enjoy its peaceful atmosphere. Quiet oasis in a hot city. A lot of visitors just sit down and relax. There wee lots of Hinduists when we visited as well.

Sri Mariamman Temple is a major Hindu temple on the corner of Temple Street and South Bridge Road in Singapore's Chinatown. Like many other Hindu temples I have visited it is totally over-the-top in its decor and colorations of the multitude and complexities of the Hindu gods and deities that are worshipped here. Sri Mariamman is vey much an active... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
