About
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.

    Worth a vist to Sri Mariamman Temple!
    If you are planning to visit Singapore's Chinatown, it is worth a detour to come by the Sri Mariamman Temple. It is only about a two block walk from the Chinatown exit A- on the Northeast Line (Purple). To fully appreciate its vastness and the intricate details carved in each of the characters that are located on this temple, you will need to step back , best across the street and zoom in the details. There is so much color, figurines, and animals in this extraordinary entrance into the temple itself. It is like one giant storybook full of pictures that depict the culture of the India culture. I believe you can go in but you must leave your shoes in the racks or on the ground prior to entering the temple grounds. It is quite a busy area with a lot of foot traffic . Stepping back offered me a different perspective of the entire entrance as it is difficult to see all the details from just looking up at it.

    Colorful and Noisy
    The temple is Singapore's oldest Hindu temple and dates to 1827. We were privileged to be allowed view various ceremonies that were being held in the various halls, babies being sprinkled with water, loud music accompanying, to protect against evil spirits perhaps. The temple is dedicated to the goddess Mariamman, known for her power to cure illnesses and diseases and perhaps we witnessed related ceremonies. The building showcases ornate and elaborate colour detailing of both the interior and exterior with the gopuram covered with colourful sculptures of deities and mythological figures.

    Beautiful temple
    Really beautiful temple. We got here at 6p when they were reopening. They had just finished blessing a number of the statues and were playing a drum with their fingers and long glue type instrument. All the paintings and statues were very colorful. Worth a stop if you are in the area.

    Interesting temple if you’re in Chinatown
    Worth popping in for a look around as the temple is beautiful and the colours stunning. You have to remove your shoes as it is a place of worship so be respectful and keep to the areas where tourists are allowed. Allow about 15 minutes or so to walk around and take a few photos.

A lovely temple to visit
Shoes must be removed prior to entry
As it is a working temple we were careful where we went and what photos we took.
Some great colours in the statues and buildings

It's alright, many of the temple was being refurbished so it was hidden behind scaffolding, but you could still go in

The main structure was under renovation on my visit but people were still allowed to enter the temple. Close to the Buddha Tooth so very conveniently located

Singapore is a melting pot of ethnicities, nationalities, language and religions. You can admire worship places from almost every religion. This Hindu temple, paradoxically, is situated in the Chinatown, a fact which shows how peacefully different religions co-exhist there. The shape of this temple recalls the ones of Southern India.
