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.
Dorsett Singapore has one of the best locations of all 4-star hotels in Singapore – right above the Outram Park MRT station. Our hotel sits in historic Chinatown and brings a striking yet sophisticated contrast to the traditional architecture of the surrounding precinct with its modern, full-glass façade. In doing so, it has become something of a refreshing landmark.
The innovation continues inside the hotel, where our 285 high-ceilinged guest rooms and lofts have been designed with the considerations of the contemporary traveller’s comfort in mind, like Posturepedic mattresses so you’ll get the best night’s sleep possible. All rooms have high-speed wireless internet access, and a 42” LED TV with international cable channels help you stay connected while in the global city of Singapore. The price starts from SGD 132.00 per night.
The 'New Asia' style of hospitality finds one of its most rarefied expressions in the New Majestic, located in the heart of Singapore's Chinatown. An open-concept, period-inspired lobby shows the imaginative possibilities of this marriage of the old and the new or 'heritage chic' as the hotel calls its particular design, which also takes into account its period furniture dating from the 1920s to the 1960s. Individually designed rooms, 30 in all, continue the mix of vintage and designer furniture, customised baths, private gardens and six-metre-high ceilings in attic-style suites. Back downstairs, The Majestic Restaurant is a sleek reinterpretation of one of Singapore's favourite Chinese dining rooms and serves modern Cantonese cuisine.
