Sri Senpaga Vinayagar Temple


Easily among the most beautiful Hindu temples in Singapore, Sri Senpaga Vinayagar's interior is adorned with wonderfully colourful devotional art, all labelled in various languages. Another feature is the temple's kamala paatham, a specially sculpted granite footstone found in certain ancient Hindu temples. Topping it all off, literally, is the roof of the inner sanctum sanctorum, lavishly covered in gold.
