About
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.

If you are planning to visit Singapore's Chinatown, it is worth a detour to come by the Sri Mariamman Temple. It is only about a two block walk from the Chinatown exit A- on the Northeast Line (Purple).
To fully appreciate its vastness and the intricate details carved in each of the characters that are located on this temple, you will need to step back , best across the street and zoom in the details. There is so much color, figurines, and animals in this extraordinary entrance into the temple itself. It is like one giant storybook full of pictures that depict the culture of the India culture.
I believe you can go in but you must leave your shoes in the racks or on the ground prior to entering the temple grounds. It is quite a busy area with a lot of foot traffic .
Stepping back offered me a different perspective of the entire entrance as it is difficult to see all the details from just looking up at it.

A lovely temple to visit
Shoes must be removed prior to entry
As it is a working temple we were careful where we went and what photos we took.
Some great colours in the statues and buildings

It's alright, many of the temple was being refurbished so it was hidden behind scaffolding, but you could still go in

The main structure was under renovation on my visit but people were still allowed to enter the temple. Close to the Buddha Tooth so very conveniently located

Singapore is a melting pot of ethnicities, nationalities, language and religions. You can admire worship places from almost every religion. This Hindu temple, paradoxically, is situated in the Chinatown, a fact which shows how peacefully different religions co-exhist there. The shape of this temple recalls the ones of Southern India.

This is a beautiful Hindu temple located right outside Chinatown mrt. There are always devotes praying and tourists going in to take a look. Remember to dress modestly and shoes have to be taken off at the entrance.

There was a ceremony going on so we didn't feel comfortable entering the temple but there was lots to admire from outside. On top of the temple sits 6 tiers of brightly coloured Hindu Deities, making it one of the most impressive looking temples I've seen.

We went to the Sri Mariamman Temple and it was beautiful. You take off your shoes and walk in and view the beauty of the temple. There was some ceremony going on but do not know what it was about.
