Sri Sivan Temple

overview

It has been recorded that the Sri Sivan Temple was rebuilt as a solid structure in the early 1850’s at the Orchard Road site under which the Dhoby Ghaut MRT station is located. The Sivalinga was known to be worshiped at this site well before 1850. The Sivalinga had moved three times within Singapore- once from Potong Pasir to a spot in the lower end of Dhoby Ghaut; then to a site near where MacDonald House Stands today; and then on to the Orchard Road site where it used to be until 1983.

An order placing Sri Sivan Temple under the Mohammedan and Hindu Endowments Board (set up in 1907) was gazetted on October 18, 1915. In 1968, the Hindu Endowments Board (HEB) was formed to manage four temples including the Sri Sivan Temple.

Etiquette

What to wear when visiting a Hindu Temple?

1 The basic dress code when visiting a Hindu Temple is: shoulders must be covered (easily done with a scarf or a shawl) and trousers or skirts must cover at least knees. 4 Socks are fine, visitors can keep wearing them unless the temple floor is made of marble or any other slippery stone and it may be best to remove socks too.
2 It is best to avoid anything too tight, too short and too revealing. Generally it is better to wear too much rather than too little when visiting a temple. 5 Footwear should be removed outside the temple. Most temples will have a space designated for footwear to be left safely.
3 For those who are not appropriately dressed, temples do provide shawls, cover-ups and wraps.
