Owner description: 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.

Located in the heart of Chinatown Sri Mariamman Temple is Singapore's oldest Hindu temple. It's so colorful!

Heavy rain prevented me from attending to an open roof hop on-hop off sightseeing bus ride. Instead I took the metro to Chinatown and navigated from the Chinatown MRT station to South Bridge Road and Sri Mariamman Temple. It’s Singapore’s oldest Hindu temple and as such it was a totally new experience to me. Shoes are expected to be left outside the temple on the sidewalk (there are some racks). You cannot miss the beautiful entrance tower. There is no admission fee but there is a SGD 3.00 fee to be allowed to use your camera in the temple premises. I don’t know anything about Hindu ceremonies but I was lucky to be in the temple during one with priests, participants, music and religious rituals. You could definitely spend your time worse than spend 1 - 2 hours in this original attraction.

Beautiful Hindu Temple in Chinatown , next to Buddhist Temple. The temple is very busy and has quite a number of visitors both locals and tourists.

This is an interesting Hindu temple situated in the heart of Chinatown. There are no signs to explain anything, but you can watch the worshippers and take photos without bothering them. You must remove your shoes upon entering. Other travelers had to pay $3 for a photo permit, but no one ever asked me to purchase a permit and I took photos to my heart's content. It is worth a visit.

Not a huge temple but very colourful and well maintained. Also it seems to be used by the local community giving it an authentic air. Close to Chinatown MRT station and lots of cafes and restaurants.
