Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple

The Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple is an old temple built to worship the god Vishnu. It’s one of Singapore’s earliest religious monuments, whose history dates back to 1855.

Originally known as the Narasinga Perumal Kovil, the temple was built by heads of the Hindu community.

A plot of land was purchased from the East India Company to build a shrine for Lord Vishnu. The Mohammedan Hindu Endowments Board were given control of the temple by the early 1900s, who later on renovated the temple to add significant elements since it only had a pond and a main hall.

A wealthy merchant by the name of Mr P Govindasamy Pillai made generous donations and helped oversee the refurbishment. It reopened in 1965 and in 1978, was declared a national monument.

Conveniently located by Little India, this temple is highly recommended if you’re in the area. Its design is reflective of South Indian temple shrines; its walls feature rows upon rows of gods and goddesses in elaborate carvings. One of its most striking elements is the gopuram, whose six tiers are embellished with statues.

Another highlight is the ostentatious geometric designs found in the main temple ceiling, which embodies the universe and its nine planets. The main temple houses the image of Lord Vishu as well as his consorts, namely Lakshmi and Andal, and Garuda, his bird carrier.

The temple courtyard has a well which once served as the main source of water for devotees. This is also where you will find the Tulasi plant, which is considered sacred by the Hindus. A wedding hall within the complex is a popular venue for Hindu weddings. Thevaram classes, Project Bhakti, and homeopathy, are among the services offered by the temple.

Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple is located at 397 Serangoon Road, Singapore. Opening hours are from 6:30am to 12pm, and 6pm to 9pm.
