Sri Mariamman Temple

Free Admission
8 84 Votes
Bustling Chinatown is home to the oldest Hindu temple in Singapore, the Sri Mariamman Temple.

Dating back to 1827, the temple was known as Mariamman Kovil or Kling Street Temple, and built by immigrants from the Nagapatnam and Cuddalore districts of South India.

It is dedicated to the goddess Mariamman, known for her power to cure illnesses and diseases.

Now a national monument, much of the present structure is believed to have been built in 1862-63 by Indian craftsmen.

Besides worship, the temple was an important place for community activities during the colonial era. It was even the Registry of Marriages for Hindus – at the time, only the temple was authorised to solemnise Hindu marriages.
