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.

Had a recent trip in Singapore to visit my sister who is based there. My husband and I really enjoyed walking within this area. It has a deep culture history behind it and the architecture was really amazing. If you're visiting Singapore, make sure to...More

Beautifully decorated small temple in Little India. Bit of silence and peace in a buzzy Metropol like Singapore. Lot of tourists, but lot of local people as well.

The smell there is awful, to say the least. I saw two people "possessed floundering on the floor. It wasn't a pleasant experience at all.Skip the visit, but go to the Buddhist temple,it's just gorgeous.

Look from outside, and no motivation to take a look inside. Too much different than Western world. Not really interest to me at all.

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'.
