Sri Mariamman Temple, Singapore

(3.9/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
A testament to immigrants from the Nagapatnam and Cuddalore districts of South India, Sri Mariamman Temple serves as the oldest Hindu temple in the country. Built in 1827 in the Dravidian style, the temple features a characteristic pyramid shape and stone construction. At one time it was the only temple authorized to solemnize Hindu marriages, and it played an important role as a social community space during the colonial era. The temple reveres the goddess Mariamman--goddess of curing illness and disease--and it hosts the annual fire walking ceremony. Ornate and elaborate, the temple is adorned by colorful depictions of deities, mythological beasts, and other beings. Use our Singapore family vacation planner to add Sri Mariamman Temple and other attractions to your Singapore vacation plans.

  • A nice temple to see, but I would not consider it as a must-see. Be aware that you'll need to pay $3 if you bring a photo camera to the temple, and $6 if you want to film here.
  • Very quiet place. Pooja is done frequently. Adorable goddess dressed in various colours and styles.
  • Unity in Diversity of Singapore can be seen around here.. Hindu temple in China town where Mosque and buddha temple are near by and people are practicing their religion in their respective place without any problem.. This is Singapore
  • A good hindu temple. Visited on 22nd September 2016
