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.

Beautiful entrance, calm in the storm.

The most impressive carvings are at the entrance although there are still good ones inside. Not that many people go inside making it feel very calm in a very busy area. You have... read more

The most impressive carvings are at the entrance although there are still good ones inside. Not that many people go inside making it feel very calm in a very busy area. You have to leave your shoes outside but they did let us take our pushchair in. They also ask for a small fee to take photos inside. There are... More

I visit this temple to see what is the different between temple in Bali. Temple located by the street. Really hot. You must take off your shoes and leave it outside of the temple. So if you come to the temple alone or as couple, you must waiting each other to make sure your shoes still there. It will be... More

As a family we visited the temple only accidentally as we walked by. The entrance is capitivating, and the beautiful live sitar music added to a most relaxing hour as we took our time to admire the handiwork of generations.

This is a beautiful Hindo temple which is very welcoming to visitors. There was a service taking place so parts were closed off. Of course you remove shoes and leave them outside. My shoulders were not covered but was haven a shawl to wear whilst inside.

I am not a Hindi so my review is based solely on the visual impact of this wonderful place. I don't know that I would make a special trip to see it, but it is certainly worth seeing if you are anywhere near this location. It's bright and colourful and if you are fortunate enough to be there at the... More

I do not know anything about indian temples but this one is supposed to be one of the most famous and visited of Singapore. So I did visited it based on that. It is located near Chinatown and has a lot of decorated statues, which gives him a kitshy style. There are lots of local people praying and also school... More

Couldn't even get inside there were so many tourists, cross the street take a photo it looks good and keep walking down the road to the Buddha tooth relic temple - so much easier to get into!

Get the MRT to Pagoda Street in China Town, walk to the end of the street and there is a Hindu Temple! a great place to relax and take off your shoes! Colourful art work and sculptures mean lots of people are taking pictures. Grab a bit to eat afterwards in Smith Street.

I work hard to make time to see this temple every time I'm in Singapore. Indians are some of the most welcoming and gentle people I've ever met. I count many as some of my dearest friends. This temple is big for Singapore and I often find music floating throughout. The only thing about this temple is they require a... 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.
