    If you only have time to visit one Buddhist temple then this is the one you have to see. We were blown away by the beauty and calmed by the atmosphere. We really felt like we left the busy city and had walked into another world away. It was so peaceful.

    After an original mosque was built on the site in 1824 for the first Sultan of Singapore, this impressive building, with it's onion shaped domes, was erected in 1928 and now stands as a national monument. Although we didn't venture inside the beautiful architecture can be admired externally and I adored the gold detailing.

    It is the general feel of the area that enhances this place. Numerous street stallholders, well-ordered and well-stocked, made us feel quite relaxed.

    When we were in little India we went to this temple
    Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple
    before you go in there is a place for you to wash feet and place your shoes outside. Walking in there were a lot of people giving offerings
    There was some ceremony also
    Area around temple is not very clean and it is sad since Singapore is clean

    天福宫 is nestled in the Chinatown area which boost many cultural & historic buildings. It is along Telok Ayer Street, near to Boon Tat road. The Taoist temple is dedicated to the Sea goddess Mazu and traced its history back to the early 1800's.. I learned that the Temple originally faced the sealine (there has been much land reclaimed over the century).!
    Like most established Temples the entrance hall has one main door and two side doors; the entrance leads directly into main courtyard. From here one can see the temple proper where the shrine of Mazu is located centrally. On either side of the temple are pagodas with octagonal base, very symbolic of Chinese good fengshui. Guarding the doors are stone lions and Door Gods.
    The temple grounds may not be big but its altars and buildings and pillars are uniquely ornated/ carved. Bright red lanterns hung from the tall ceiling, making it a delightful and Instagramable sight. The temple is richly decorated with coloured tiles, gold lacquered wood with figures of dragons-phoenix too. Somewhat resembled the Taiwanese Temple I visited in January at Taipei, just before the COVID-19 halted ALL travels!
    This temple is small so one probably spend 30 mins or so. Definitely well maintained, and there are explanation in both Chinese/English to cater to visitors. Nearby are eateries, cafes and other religious places so it make for a good trip-visit for all.

    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.

    I went via taxi from another temple site but had problems getting one when leaving. However a lady in the office called one for me. The site looks big but it was easy to negotiate. The buildings were beautiful and you are free just to wonder at leisure there didn’t seem to be any facilities there? No toilets or place to get drink, so take water. If you like temples then it’s certainly worth trying to fit a visit in, there is no charge

    Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple is one of the oldest Hindu temples in Singapore. It is located in the region of Small India on Serangun Road. This large temple complex dedicated to Vishnu was founded in 1855, but the 20-meter high Gopuram was established quite recently, in 1966. Inside the temple are the statues of Perum (or Vishnu), his wives Lakshmi and Andal and his bird-mountain Garuda. The temple is dedicated to Krishna, one of the incarnations of the god Vishnu. Pay particular attention to the ceiling of the temple with a circular ornament and the image of 9 planets.

    At the base of Ft. Canning hill in the colonial district you will find the oldest church in Singapore just edging out St. Andrews. Built in 1835 shortly after the creation of Singapore, it is an Armenian Church and built in Greek revival style, beautifully painted clean, white. Its exterior looks like so many early 19th Century churches in the US. However, inside it is a very interesting circular nave and sanctuary, still in a very historic setting. While we peeked in we could not take pictures due to an event. However it is a great structure to visit. Exterior alone is beautiful.

    I’ve been meaning to visit the temple for a while now. The carvings of the facade and their colors, from what i glimpsed from the main road looked quite interesting. I decided to drop by this very sunny morning. The light and the backdrop of blue skies resulted in some really great pictures.

    Pls make sure to wear proper attire - no shorts, no short skirts so that you can enter the temple. The staff were friendly and accomodating.
