The Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple is a Hindu place of worship located along Serangoon Road in Little India. A shrine to Lord Vishnu, the Hindu God of Preservation, this temple is known for its magnificently ornate 20-metre-high Gopuram (entrance tower) which depicts the various incarnations of the deity.
The Dravidian architecture of the temple is a visual masterpiece, with thousands of intricate sculptures and paintings adorning the five-tiered tower and ceiling that transport visitors into the world of Hindu mythology. One of the oldest temples in the country, Srinivasa Perumal Temple was first built in 1855 and gazetted as a national monument in 1978.
Built primarily with donations from P. Govindasamy Pillai, a famous south Indian philanthropist, the famous landmark features idols of Lord Vishnu along with his consorts Lakshmi and Andal, and his mount Garuda. Important Hindu festivals like Thaipusam, Brahmotsavam, and Vaikunta Ekadasi are celebrated with much gusto here, and the prasadam (ceremonial offerings) are a must-try!
