Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple

Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple

Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple is a beautiful Hindu temple located in Little India, Singapore. This temple was originally founded in the 1850s, renovated in the 1960s, and today stands as a national monument. It is located near many other Hindu and Buddhist temples, including Leong San See temple, which I featured for the letter ‘L’ earlier this month.

Sri Srinivasa Perumal temple is a Vishnu temple. The gopuram, the ornate tower above the entrance of the temple pictured above and below, was added in the 60s and is 20 meters tall, or just over 65 feet.

Sri Srinivasa Perumal temple is also the starting point for Thaipussam, a holiday that is still strongly celebrated among the Hindu population of Singapore. I definitely recommend giving this temple a look if you are visiting Singapore.
