Ranked 155 among Places to Visit in Singapore
Time Required: 1 hour
Situated at the Geylang Avenue in Singapore, the stupendous Sri Sivan Temple is a place of worship of the Hindu God, Lord Shiva, the presiding deity of the temple. This magnificent temple can very well be considered as a modern structure, with the fusion of both South and North Indian architectural influences adding to the aura of this holy place.
Initially established at Potong Pasir, this sacred temple was shifted to three other sites before finally settling at its present location, near the Foo Hai Ch'an Buddhist Monastery. Even though Lord Shiva is the prime idol of worship, Sri Sivan Temple houses at least twelve other deities, including the ornate Sri Vinayagar, Sri Viswanathar, Sri Navagraham, Sri Kalabairavar, and Sri Vishalashi Amman, to name a few. There are six main prayers held here on a daily basis, and the temple has a specific time for the performance of the same. During festivals like Maha Shivratri and Vasanth Panchami, this place is surrounded by a jubilant atmosphere. It teems with devotees who come here to perform the various rituals and seek blessings from God. Other festivals are also celebrated with pomp throughout the year.
Apart from being a place of worship, this gorgeous temple also provides free homoeopathy services, Hinduism classes to children (known as Project Bhakti), free Thevaram classes for both adults and children, and also primary and tertiary bursaries.
