Built in 1855 by Tamil labourers, the temple has a South Indian architectural style. The gopuram or tower, a common element in South Indian temple architecture, was built at a height so that it can be seen from a distance.

This is one of Singapore's oldest temples, built in the Dravidian style by early migrants. The sculptures at this temple are really amazing. Amazing, too, is the friendly welcome from the priests and parishioners. When you consider that they host, probably, 100+ visitors a day...More

It's a higly decorated temple with many paintings and statues of Hindu dieties. I had the chance to visit the temple during a ceremony and they had no problems with that. Just don't forget to remove your shoes.

Outside you are amazed by the ornate decoration of depicted deities. Very colorful and unique. Beforw you go inside you need to wash your feet (if dirty) and remove shoes as you walk through the temple. You will notice some people offering their respects.

Little India
With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of
Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander
past traditional barbershops while local residents in
brightly coloured saris patronize retailers from
decades past. Peruse streets lined with colourful
shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge.
Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts
and take in the stalls selling bright flowers,
