It's a bit out of the way but if you're close to the Singapore National Museum or Fort Canning, you can walk. Built in 1859, the colorful temple is one of the most important for local Hindus.

The beautifully ornate Sri Thendayuthapani Temple helped give me insight to another religion's practices. Visitors should remove shoes before entering. The worshipers ring one of the many bells on the door as they pass. Inside are beautiful statues of deities, lotus carvings as base for...More

First visited this temple before its renovation in 1983. It's still a good place to visit. Though not so ancient as many temples in India, Sri Lanka, etc., it still offers a similar ambiance.
