Something to share in every single week throughout the year

Week 19 – Sri Srinivasa Perumal Hindu Temple

Both MRT stations, Little India and Farrer Park, are nearby the temple. It is located on the main road. It is easy to get there. It is only five minutes of walking distance. This large complex is dedicated to Lord Vishnu, dates from 1855. The tall tower which stands 20 meters high at the entrance of the temple shows the different incarnations of Lord Vishnu.

The area around the temple was once filled with ponds and vegetable gardens. A stream used to lead into the temple and was an important source for devotees to ritually cleanse themselves before beginning worship. Inside the temple’s inner courtyard, a well marks the spot where the stream used to flow. I find this place magnificent.
