At the end of Tanglin Halt Road, as you head towards Tanglin Halt Green, you will come across the impressive Gopuram (tower entrance to the sanctuary) of a Hindu temple.
In 1932, Indian workers of the Malayan Railway built a shrine beside the railway tracks near Queensway to honour the Hindu deity, Sri Muneeswaran. The shrine, called Muniandy Temple, started out in a hut housing only a stone and a trident to symbolise the deity. In 1967, the temple was registered as a religious organization.
As Queenstown's Hindu community continued to grow, the number of worshippers also increased as this was the only Hindu temple in the vicinity. The temple therefore bought bigger premises at its current location in 1991 to house its growing number of devotees. The new building was completed in 1998 and artisans from India were commissioned to work on the Gopuram and statues of the deities. One key feature of the temple is the lack of central pillars in the inner sanctum, which allows devotees to have full view of rituals.
Currently, this temple is believed to be the largest shrine for Sri Muneeswaran in Southeast Asia. The temple, which began as a religious centre for Hindu residents of Queenstown, has since developed a social role as well. It is active in organizing services such as match making and counselling.
