Look for the spectacular carvings

What we say: 4.5 stars

This is Singapore's oldest Hindu temple and its roots can be traced back to 1827, but the extraordinary carvings on the roof weren't added until the 1960s.

The temple is dedicated to Mariamman, a mother goddess who cures diseases and controls rains, and is the site of a spectacular fire-walking ceremony one week before the Diwali holiday.

The temple is a national monument and a major tourist attraction in Chinatown — visitors are free to walk around inside and take photos.
