About
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.

It's alright, many of the temple was being refurbished so it was hidden behind scaffolding, but you could still go in

The main structure was under renovation on my visit but people were still allowed to enter the temple. Close to the Buddha Tooth so very conveniently located

Singapore is a melting pot of ethnicities, nationalities, language and religions. You can admire worship places from almost every religion. This Hindu temple, paradoxically, is situated in the Chinatown, a fact which shows how peacefully different religions co-exhist there. The shape of this temple recalls the ones of Southern India.

This is a beautiful Hindu temple located right outside Chinatown mrt. There are always devotes praying and tourists going in to take a look. Remember to dress modestly and shoes have to be taken off at the entrance.

There was a ceremony going on so we didn't feel comfortable entering the temple but there was lots to admire from outside. On top of the temple sits 6 tiers of brightly coloured Hindu Deities, making it one of the most impressive looking temples I've seen.

We went to the Sri Mariamman Temple and it was beautiful. You take off your shoes and walk in and view the beauty of the temple. There was some ceremony going on but do not know what it was about.

Walking tour took us into Sri Mariamman Temple, the oldest Hindu Temple in
Singapore. Our guide went into much more detail than we could ever possibly remember. He explained about the annual walking on the hot coals, the gods and other details of the Hindu religion.

While Chinatown has two incredible Buddhist temples, the center of the district is this Hindu temple. The temple is impressive with a tall entrance tower and colorful sanctuary. However, its most impressive feature may be the exterior statues around the two domes in the back. In addition, the surrounding side temples are also very detailed and colorful. I will say this temple was not as vibrant as those in Little India, but the statues were still impressive. This is a Chinatown must see.

This is a Hindu Temple located on Temple street in Chinatown. The outside is fairly typical South Indian style temple with a gopuram, which is fairly standard for this type of temple. It wasn’t that busy when I visited, which gave me an opportunity to wander around and take a good look inside. There isn’t much to see and it’s less decorated than say the Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple in Little India. Only visit if you have time.
