About Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple

Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple is one of the oldest temples in Singapore. It was declared a national monument in 1978.

The history of Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple dates back to the late 1800s when influential community leaders, with close working ties with the East India Company, wanted to build a Hindu temple for Vaishnavite worship.

The original structure of the Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple remained unchanged until the early 1960s when it was redeveloped. Indian community leader and philanthropist P. Govindasamy Pillay funded much of the works, including the temple’s five-tier Gopuram and the two-storey marriage hall within the temple. It was officially opened by the first president of Singapore, Yusoff Bin Ishak, on 19th June 1965.

Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple is dedicated to Krishna, one of the incarnations of Vishnu. Inside the temple, you will find a statue of Perumal (or Vishnu), his consorts Lakshmi and Andal, and his bird-mount Garuda. The temple’s ceiling is filled with a colourful circular pattern depicting the nine planets of the universe.

    May 20, 2014 Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple

    This Hindu Temple takes you away from Singapore, bringing you to India as soon as you take off your shoes and ring the bells to enter. Luckily we arrived at the temple during prayer time, and we could see the blessings and the procession to take away the richly decorated statues of the gods. I liked the vibe very much, I felt as if I were miles away from malls and food courts.
