Mariamman Temple is Singapore's oldest Hindu temple. It is an agamic temple, built in the Dravidian style. Located at 244 South Bridge Road, in the downtown Chinatown district, the temple serves the majority Hindu Singaporeans, Tamilians, in the city-state. Due to its architectural and historical significance, the temple has been gazetted a National Monument and is a major tourist attraction. The Hindu Endowments Board manages Sri Mariamman Temple, a statutory board under the Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports.
The Sri Mariamman Temple was founded in 1827 by Naraina Pillai, eight years after the East India Company established a trading settlement in Singapore. Pillai was a government clerk from Penang who arrived in Singapore with Sir Stamford Raffles on his second visit to the island in May 1819. Pillai went on to set up the island's first construction company, and also entered the textile trade. He rapidly established himself in business and was identified as a leader of the Indian community.
The popular Tiong Bahru Market opened in 1951 as Seng Poh Road Market. It was then just “a simple wooden structure with zinc pitched roof”. Named after the street commemorating Singapore’s first Chinese Municipal Commissioner, Tan Seng Poh, the market was built to house a large number of street hawkers who had served the rapidly growing community at Tiong Bahru. It became an instant draw for the residents, many of whom had relocated from Chinatown.
Several well-known food items have been synonymous with the name “Tiong Bahru”, from chwee kueh, pao, porridge to roast pork. Talk about best stalls, and there are too many to choose from such as Lee Hong Kee Cantonese Roast, Long Ji Soya Bean Drink, Tiong Bahru Fishball, Tiong Bahru Pau Yi Sheng Hokkien Mee to Koh Brother Pig’s Organ Soup.
Singapore Lockdown is a real-life escape game in which players are placed into a ‘locked’ room and have to figure a way of getting out collaboratively. Each room presents a new puzzle, some simple, some not and if you get stuck, you can always ask the helpful staff for clues. Failing that, there is an emergency escape door for those that become too claustrophobic or find that their time has run out – whichever comes sooner: great fun for the whole family and a good alternative way to spend a rainy day in Singapore. You can find Lockdown located in ‘The Central’ shopping centre in Clarke Quay. Games cost around SGD 20 per person per hour.
