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.

The first thing that struck me about this temple was the ornate decorative features inside and out. This was soon overtaken by the complete reverence shown by worshippers and visitors that this temple commanded. It was truly amazing. Inside you can witness blessings, offerings and...More

Drums beating and trumpets flaring. Bells ringing and clanging. The high decibel is on par with a jackhammer. You wouldn't want to risk your ear drum bursting to step inside the arena. The temple could have make soothing music instead of pure noise to appease...More

It's a nice South Indian temple. It has lot of idols of different gods & goddesses. It almost felt like any temple in Chennai. Quite authentic. Definitely recommended if you are near Little India.

This is a lovely temple to walk past as you walk down Serangoon road. But I wouldn't go out of your way, unless you are going to go in. It is intricate, and in the heart of Little India. There are shops close by too.

It doesn't take long to check out but it's worth doing so. It's very colorful and quite a sight to see.

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,

What time can we visit the temples? Last time we visited Little India we were told the temples were closed, but it seems they are open early and all day. I don't want to miss them this time. Thank you

The temple is open all the time, but at some times of the year, such as when Muslims are preparing for the Haj, it is very busy and tourists are not as welcome as they are at less busy times.

Hi, We were there as early as 7 AM. They open pretty early, so you can come there anytime of the day. I am not really sure if they have held any celebrations and stuff there tho'.
