Sri Krishnan Temple
Testament to religious harmony
What we say:
Slip off your shoes if you want to enter this testament to Singapore's religious harmony, set near a turn on Waterloo St.
Though it's definitely a Hindu temple dedicated to Krishna — an important god identifiable by his blue skin — worshippers from the neighbouring Buddhist temple also stop by for some prayer and space has been made for an idol of Chinese goddess Kwan Im.
The rooftop carvings of animals and gods aren't as impressive as the Sri Mariamman temple in Chinatown, but the extra-large statues of Hanuman and Garuda guarding the entrance are.
