If you have never visited an Indian temple, this is a beautiful one, probably, the best Indian Temple in Singapore. But if you compare with other temples around the world is not so extraordinary.

This is a lovely place, right next to ChinaTown, so easy to find (you can get a Hop on/Hop off bus or the MRT which is minutes away). Some people were not paying to take photos, its only $3 (Singaporean) and goes towards the upkeep, so in my mind it is worth it, plus I didn't need to sneak around... More

Pretty nice temple: nice architecture and sculptures but a bit dirty and not as impressive as some others we saw. Had to pay $2 to take photos inside which was odd.

very rude staff, I turned back around because of their manner and didn’t go in. You need to cover up in this temple (I did expect this and had a scarf for my shoulders and hair) but the signs weren’t clear, there are only on one side of the temple, there is an entrance on the left and on the...

A bit underwhelming and nothing much to see. Needs investment to spruce it up - looks neglected. Luckily, close by a lots of other things to see and buy.

This morning visited this temple located at South Bridge Road (Chinatown). At 7.45am, the temple was having a ritual. Many devotees were asking for blessings. More and more people started coming in. Colourful interiors, many little shrines and many deities. One temples but many gods and goddesses. One shrine was dedicated to the Elephant God "Ganesha". Admussion is free but... More

The entrance looks amazing, but inside is not very much to see. The sign said "no shoes beyond this point" which is of course understandable, but the floor could have been better taken care of.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
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.
