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.

My wife and I visited the Sri Mariamman Temple while looking for things to fill our time in the larger tourist attraction of Chinatown. The Sri Mariamman temple is Singapore oldest temple, with its first build dating back to 1827. It’s free to enter and appropriate covering clothing is provided if needed but having been inside I can assure you... More

When you enter this place there will be a signage to ask you take off your footwears. This place is beautiful really and kept sacred. I see many signage that warns tourists no to enter certain areas. I am lucky that I can hear sitar and drums played when I visit. I thinks we can find beautiful spots for photo... More

Being situated right next to the very busy Pagoda Street market area I was very pleasantly surprised that this Temple was so quiet/ serene once inside. It was beautifully designed and decorated and had a completely different vibe to other temples visited which made it well worth seeing and experiencing.

It doesn't cost to walk around this beautiful temple, unless you want to take pictures (3 Singapore Dollars). Just remember to take your shoes off before entering! Clothing wise: trousers for men and something that covers the legs for women. Socks or bare feet are both fine. On the top half something that covers the shoulders/modest is appropriate for both...

Although not Hindu I do enjoy seeing other cultures places of worship. It was a pleasure to walk around this temple and see and hear the the worshippers. Situated so close to China Town the building is a delight with its carvings and sculptures, painted in numerous colours. One needs to remove your shoes before entering and a fee is... More

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.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
