Robertson Quay information
The most remote and thus least visited of the Quays, Robertson Quay features a desultory collection of restaurants, hotels, bars, a really garish bridge and a club selling cheap drinks (accounts for its popularity with the young ‘uns). This area was once used for storage of goods that had come west up the Singapore River.

Officially known as the Sri Thandayuthapani Temple, the open-walled, blue-green Chettiar Hindu Temple was completed in 1984, replacing a temple built by Indian chettiars (moneylenders). Dedicated to the six-headed Shaivite god, Lord Subramaniam, it’s at its most active during the Thaipusam festival.
Undergoing massive renovations recently, the Hong San See Temple was completed in 1913 and set up on a hill. The temple is built in a southern Chinese fashion, with sloping tiled roofs and ornamented columns.
