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.

The temple entrance is probably what looks the most impressive. Inside of the temple is spacious, sometimes they have some shows there. They even hand out free food but we did not like it (maybe because it is vegetarian). No more than 30 minutes to...More

This is the oldest Hindu temple in Singapore. The entry gate is very colourful. There is no entry fee. Adjacent to the Chinatown. So if you are in Chinatown, visit this place for 10-15 minutes.

Nice enough to see if you're in the area. Colourful and quiet. Not that big and not a lot to see. Unable to see a lot as they were setting up for a festival

I loved this place. You have to make sure that you're not wearing short shorts or have bare shoulders, and take off your shoes before going in. You can wonder around in about 15-20 minutes. Bear in mind that you shouldn't approach the shrines directly...More

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.
