Located at Ceylon Road in Singapore, the Sri Senpaga Vinayagar Temple is a 150-year-old Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Ganesha. The temple is most famous for the four granite structures depicting Lord Ganesha in 32 poses. This was the successful work of 20 Indian artisans who spent 20 years on this masterpiece.
Sri Senpaga Vinayagar Temple was established in 1850 when the statue of Lord Vinayagar was discovered after it washed up on the banks of a stream near a champak tree. The tree, which stood on the bank of the pond, acted as an identifying element to the Senpaga (Tamil for Champak) temple. Mr.Ethirnayagam Pillai, a Ceylon Tamil pioneered the building of the first structure with the help of Indian workers. It was a decent shelter with an attap roof. This delightful abode with the Champak tree became the temple of Sri Senpaga Vinayagar. In 2003, it was designated as a historic site. The Vinayagar Shrine is from the time of the earliest groups of Sri Lankan Tamil immigrants in Singapore.
