Singapore Sri Muneeswaran Temple History:
The Sri Muneeswaran Temple located at Commonwealth Drive is believed to be the largest shrine dedicated to Sri Muneeswaran in South-East Asia. The Temple was constructed at a cost of $2,000,000 and consecrated on 1st February 1998 to replace the old Queensway Muneeswaran Temple, which was destroyed in connection with a road- widening project. The Temple premises have a 3-story multi-purpose hall, administrative offices and a prayer hall.
In 1932, the Malayan Railway employees residing in Queenstown planted a trident and a triangular stone in an attap hut under a banyan tree and that marked the beginning of Sri Muneeswaran Temple. The wooden hut was known as the Muniandy Temple where Hindu devotees assembled for daily prayers. In January 1970, a new Temple at a cost of $7,000 was constructed along Queensway to replace the shrine. Statues of the deities such as Muneeswaran, Vinayagar, Mariamman and Murugan were imported from India.
The Queensway Muneeswaran Temple is located close to the former Malayan Railways. A long time worshipper named Anantha Sayanam recalled that the temple was on the land belonging to the Malayan Railways and whenever trains travelled past the Temple, they would sound their horn and the children would run towards the tracks to see the train.
After moving to the Commonwealth Drive, the Temple underwent several renovations in 2004, 2008 and 2011 to improve its facilities to cater to the needs of the growing Hindu devotees in Queenstown. The 4th consecration ceremony of the Temple was held on 10th July 2011.
