Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple
Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple or Sri Perumal Temple, which sits in Little India on Serangoon Road, is one of the most ancient temples in Singapore. The massive temple complex, dedicated to Lord Krishna or Vishnu, dates back to 1855.

Idols and Architecture
The temple is known for its 20 meters tall gopurams (towers) which display the different incarnations of Lord Vishnu. The temple is fairly old, but the gopurams were added to it in 1966 incurring the cost of S$300,000.

Within the complex, one would find the idols of Lord Perumal, or Vishnu, his consorts Lakshmi and Andal, and his bird-mount Garuda. Perumal is one of the names of Lord Krishna and his idols, colored blue, can be found all over the temple. The ceiling of the temple is filled by a colorful circular patterns showcasing the nine planets.

The Temple was designated as a national monument in 1978.

Thaipusam Festival
The devotees throng the temple during the annual Thaipusam Festival. Several of them have their body organs pierced by metal skewers supporting kavadi (cage-like objects bedecked with wire and peacock feathers). To watch them expressing their faith is definitely an intriguing sight.

How To Reach
The Temple is at a short walk from Raffles Place or Tanjong Pagar MRT Station.
