Singapore: Sri Mariamman Temple

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.
