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.

I always enjoy visiting temples around the World and learning about different religions and people. Sri Mariamman Temple is a Very visual place. Lots of color and detailed statues. You could spend a lot of time just studying the details. A place to visit while you are looking around Chinatown.

Nice Indian temple in the midst of Chinatown. Great architecture and a nice calm pleasant atmosphere. Very accessible to tourists. Smile on my face, smile in my heart - what, really, can one ask for? :)

This place is a nice place for a photo opportunity but, otherwise, I don't really see the fuss about it, unless you are venturing in to pray.

Nice picture spot to pass by if you’re walking in the area but we only spent about 10 minutes here. You can take off your shoes and go inside the Temple (free entry) but nothing much to see.

Weirdly enough, Chinatown has a famous Indian temple called as the Mariamman temple which is quite beautifully designed one might add. Not much to see as such but go in and seek blessings from God the Hindu way if you happen to be in Chinatown.

Thoroughly enjoyed this visit when thete was an event of worship and offering taking place. You are only allowed inside if you remove all footwear but there is a place designated for this. Paying a small charge 3sgd allows you to take photographs freely. If you visit Chinatown the Temple is just next door.

From the outset, this look great and very colourful, but sadly its all a bit of a waste of time for tourists, firstly you have to be appropriately dressed, take you shoes off at the door, you are not permitted to leave them there, you have to put them somewhere else, then you get in and they want to charge...

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
