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.

We loved walking around this temple and didn't manage to make it to many others while in Singapore. If you want a map of the temples then find them placed at the entrance of every temple.

We visited when Deepvali was being celebrated. An amazing spectacle. The Temple itself is so ornate and beautiful. But I would suggest visiting when there is not any celebrations happening and you can appreciate it fully.

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,

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'.
