Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple

Origin
Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple is sited on three adjoining plots of land that were acquired between 1855 and 1912. This temple was built in 1855 on the largest plot owned by a Hindu settler named Naracingam. A smaller plot was given to the temple by its then owner, Moona Sithumbram Pillay in 1894. A third plot was purchased in 1912 from the East India Company by the Mohammedan and Hindu Endowments Board (which administered the temple from 1907).

Worship
The temple is dedicated to Hindu god Sri Vishnu, worshipped as the embodiment of the powers of preservation and protection. Sri Vishnu in the form of Sri Srinivasa Perumal is the presiding deity here.

Early Management
For the first fifty years, private trustees managed the temple. In 1907, the property was taken over by the Mohammedan and Hindu Endowments Board (MHEB). Vested as Endowment 1, it was one of four Hindu temples administered by the MHEB.

Current Administration
Since 1969, Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple has been under the administration of the Hindu Endowments Board (HEB), a statutory body. Its day-to-day operations are supervised by a Management Committee under the HEB.

Temple Rebuilding
The original temple was a lime plaster and wood structure. Under MHEB’s administration, the temple underwent minor improvements, including the addition of concrete domes in 1916. No restoration was carried out to the temple and its vast grounds over the next five decades. The City Council of Singapore approved the construction of a much-needed new temple in 1961 and it was completed by 1966. Significant refurbishments were undertaken between the late 1970s and early 1990s, including the addition of a rajagopuram (tower entrance) to the temple’s façade in 1979. Sanctum domes were remodelled, and a covered walkway was added to link the temple mandapam (pillared hall) to the rajagopuram. The vasantha mandapam (spring hall) was remodelled and consecrated in 2005. A dining hall, a dedicated kitchen to prepare deity food oblations and a chariot store were added by 2018.

Wedding Hall
Housed within the temple grounds is a wedding hall. Built in 1965, the wedding hall was known as PGP Kalyana Mandapam. It was named after its benefactor P. Govindasamy Pillay, a community leader and philanthropist. The two-storey building was then the first public hall for the Hindu community. Renamed as PGP Hall from 2014, the wedding hall is now a three-storey complex with an auditorium, a multi-function room and a dining hall. PGP Hall is a popular venue for weddings, arts performances and celebratory ceremonies.

National Recognition
Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple was declared a National Monument in 1978.
