Gazetted as a national monument in 2014, the Sri Thendayuthapani Temple (aka Chettiar Temple since it was built by the Chettiar community in 1859) stands on 15 Tank Road. It is dedicated to the Hindu god, Lord Murugan. During the festival of Thaipusam, it is the end site of the procession from Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple on Serangoon Road. It... More

While going to Fort canning via River valley road, we spotted this temple on Tank Road. It is also known as Chettiars' Temple, very important Hindu temple, and it has been declared as a national monument. This temple is dedicated to Lord Subramaniam. During the festival of Thaipusam in January every year, Kavadias end their procession here after starting from... More

We've just moved to Singapore recently and during the first couple of weeks after we arrived, we passed this temple often. The sight of it was so striking that I wanted to learn more about it, so I was thrilled when the National Heritage Board offered guided tours for a minimal fee (S$5/per adult) this month. We had a volunteer... More

This is a small temple close to the river on Tank Road. The outside is more impressive than the inside. The tower looks pretty and so does the gate. You need to take your shoes off if you want to go inside. If you want to pray you need to buy a ticket but if you just want to look... More

I've walked past this place many times over the years but have only been inside very recently. Non-Hindus can only access a small section of the interior but it's enough to get the general idea. The entrance is quite impressive and reminiscent of some of the temples in Southern India.

The beautifully ornate Sri Thendayuthapani Temple helped give me insight to another religion's practices. Visitors should remove shoes before entering. The worshipers ring one of the many bells on the door as they pass. Inside are beautiful statues of deities, lotus carvings as base for the overhead lights, and lotus inlays on the floor. As a tourist, you are not... More

Peaceful temple located in the tank road! It is walkable from the dhobi ghat station on the north east line. Though the environment is good and the Temple decor and deities look blissful - the presence of a wedding hall in the premises of the temple takes away the charm of a place of worship, perhaps they can demarcate it...

First visited this temple before its renovation in 1983. It's still a good place to visit. Though not so ancient as many temples in India, Sri Lanka, etc., it still offers a similar ambiance.
