Time Out says

A place of worship for the god Shiva – a deity known as the master of fertility, poison and medicine, this 173-year-old temple was originally located in Potong Pasir from where it was moved three more times before settling in its present location in front of Paya Lebar MRT station. Designed by a group of renowned North and South Indian architects, the temple is built from thousands of pieces of hand-carved marble and limestone and features intricate hand-carved details on its dome-like ceiling. Apart from its magnificent architecture, there is plenty more to see and discover within the temple – you’ll find ancient wisdom of Hinduism represented through an array of paintings and traditional artworks.
