Sri Mariamman Temple
Sri Mariamman Temple, the oldest and largest temple in Singapore, has been the place of utmost importance for the Hindu community there. The Temple is dedicated to Goddess Sri Mariamman, who is worshipped for health and prosperity. Sri Mariamman is popular among South Indians, where she is addressed as amma, translated as mother.

Making of the Temple
Construction of the temple began on the land acquired in 1823 by Narayan Pillai, who had accompanied Sir Stamford Raffles to Singapore. By 1827, a wooden thatched temple was built here. By 1862-63, the present structure came into being. However, it has underwent renovations several times, and every time, something was added to the temple.

Since its inception, the Temple has been very important for the Hindu community in Singapore. It has also played significant role in promoting literacy, arts and Tamil education.

The Temple was designated as a national monument in 1973.
