Sri Mariamman Temple

It may have been in Singapore’s Chinatown, but on Pagoda Street stood a Hindu temple in all its rainbow glory.

Back in the 1800s, peddlers sold goods displayed on scraps of old newspaper around the temple on both sides of the street. Slave traders and opium dens weren’t uncommon.

On my visit, it seemed rather tame compared to its colourful past. Now the colour existed only on the temple itself.
