Sri Thendayuthapani Temple
Time Out says
Sri Thendayuthapani Temple, also known as Chettiars’ Temple, was built in 1859 and is one of Singapore’s oldest temples and stands as a living testimony to the Chettiars’ contributions to Singapore’s colonial economy.
The stones found at Sri Thendayuthapani Temple show that the temple was sanctified on April 4 1859. The original temple had a simple structure with two raised platforms at the entrance that were similar to that found in Chettiar houses. It had an ‘Alangara Madaoam’ and a ‘Artha Mandapam’ which were used to house the decorated deities on special occasions and was the centre hall leading to the main sanction respectively.
The temple today has gone through numerous restorations, most recently in 2009. Thousands of devotees were present along with a live web telecast of the consecration.
