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.

Although Singapore has little India, this temple is in Chinatown! I do not know why it is built in chinatown but It was fun to witness an irony.

Apart from the architecture, there is very little to be seen here: no activity, no explanations. After removing our shoes, we realized that it was almost impossible to walk on the stones exposed to the sun (because they were so burning-hot). We ran from one...More

Weren't planning to visit the temple but passed it on the way to Buddha Temple. Get off at Chinatown and turn right after walking through stalls. You need to pay $3 at front offoce to take photos.

This is worth walking by as you stroll through Chinatown. The roofs are filled with images painted in very vibrant colors. You will need to leave your shoes at the door as you enter.

After walking from the MRT Chinatown station, down the main street and at the end turn right, the entrance to the temple is on the right. Must take shoes off to enter. Well worth the visit

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.
