Sri Mariamman Temple in Singapore :
The gopuram is covered in plaster work images of that Hindu gang of three : Brahma, the creator, Vishnu, the preserver and Shiva, the destroyer. The Temple is dedicated to the healing goddess Sri Mariamman. Around October, the Thimithi Festival takes place here : devotes queue up along south bridge road to walk barefoot over burning coals.

Temple Sri Mariamman à Singapour :
Même si le décor du temple évoque essentiellement la triade hindoue (Brahma, Vishnou et Shiva), il est dédié à la déesse Sri Mariamman guérisseuse lors des épidémies. A l’automne s’y déroule tous les ans le festival Thimithi, pendant lequel les fidèles marchent sur des braises en signe de piété.
