What we say: 3.5 stars

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.
