Sri Ramar Temple

The history of the temple can be traced back to a shrine that was situated at a foot of a tree at its present site. It began as a place of worship for inhabitants in the nearby village.

The temple began to take shape with the efforts of Mr Ram Naidu, from the British Indian Army. He secured the present site of the temple from the British at the end of the Second World War. He also started building the temple. Over time, the people living in the surrounding areas came to participate in the daily prayers and activities at the Temple.

The Loyang Avenue Redevelopment Project almost forced the temple to relocate at one point in time. But the steady resolve of the temple’s supporters and with the assistance of Mr Teo Chong Tee, then Member of Parliament for Changi, the temple won its fight to keep its premises.

In the early 1990s, a pro-term committee was formed and a proposed constitution for the temple was drafted.
26th January 1993 marked another significant milestone in the temple’s history as it was officially registered as a Society with the Registrar of Societies. Subsequently the first management committee was formed to take over the affairs of the temple under the leadership of Mr N.K. Sundarajoo.

The Sree Ramar Temple has seen a steady increase in its congregation due to the establishment of public housing estates in Tampines, Pasir Ris, Simei and the East Coast. To serve the increasing Hindu community, the management committee organises a several annual religious activities such as the Ramar Navami, Hanuman Jayanthi, Navarathiri festival, Thiruvilakku pooja, and Chandi homams. It also caters to the social and educational needs of the devotees by organising activities for families and children.

To serve the local community better, the temple recently underwent sculptural, repainting and general renovation work.
The temple also caters to the non-Hindu devotees. Statues of Lord Buddha and Quan Yin (Goddess of Mercy) have been set up for non-Hindu devotees who frequent the temple.
