The Sri Mariamman Temple is Singapore's oldest Hindu temple. It is an agamic temple, built in the Dravidian style. Located at 244 South Bridge Road, in the downtown Chinatown district, the temple serves the majority Hindu Singaporeans, Tamilians, in the city-state. Established by Indian pioneer Naraina Pillai (or Narayana Pillay) in 1827, the original wood-and-attap temple was replaced with a brick structure in 1843. The temple was gazetted as a national monument on 28 June 1973.
