Owner description: 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.

“Good structure”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

You'd have to take off your shoes in front of the temple.
Picture taking is allowed with A FEE.
The structure in front of the temple is eye catching.
There are also several statues inside - really colorful! Also, near Buddha Tooth Relic. Go there is you still have time.

“Colorful Temple in China Town”
Reviewed 24 March 2012

This temple is one of the most colorful in Singapore. It recently completed a renovation project, and the murals inside and the temple outside is very vibrant as a result. You need to remove your shoes to enter.

“Don't forget to take off your shoes outside!”
Reviewed 23 March 2012

So for Westerners it would seem weird to take off your shoes outside on a public street and just leave them there but that's what you have to do before you go into the temple. You can't miss this site...it is ornate and colorful and literally 1 block down from the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple. You might as well go to both while you're in China town. There are lots of interesting statues and artwork all over this place. Depending on how interested you are, you could spend a few minutes here or quite a bit of your afternoon here.

“Very nice temple!”
Reviewed 29 February 2012

Located in the Chinatown part of Singapore this temple is a very one to visit. Easy to make a combo with Relic Tooth building and all the nice things of Chinatown itself (shopping/eating).

Well maintained temple complex. Very colourfull and lots of details. Also very photogenetic place!
