Sri Layan Sithi Vinayagar Temple

Things to do Chinatown

Constructed in 1925 by Hindu Chettiers from South India, who came to Singapore mainly as money-lenders, this temple was intended as a shrine for Vinayagar – another name for Ganesha, the Elephant God. It was frequented by workers from the nearby hospital (which is still there) and prison (which is not). It’s still popular with worshippers at weekends, as is evident from the hundreds of pairs of shoes left in the street.
