Visiting this beautiful building is a great way to get to know Singapore’s history a little better; the temple was once the only place in which Hindu marriages could be authorized. Open daily from 7 a.m. until 12 p.m. and then again from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m., the temple is located on Yishin Avenue, which is fairly central.
