Thetraveljunkie.org – Our first day in Singapore was super sunny, with the kind of sun drops that stay on your glasses and refresh your face. We had so much energy and were really excited. We spent the day walking around one of our favourite areas: Katong. And we visited the Sri Senpaga Vinayagar Temple as part of a heritage walk with Grand Mercure Singapore Roxy. It’s just up the road from the hotel. Laviously decorated temple dedicated to Ganesha. It’s name means the Ganesha temple under the cempaka tree.
In the Hindu community, the temple is the focus for all aspects of everyday life – from religion to cultural to educational and social. I liked the words of wisdom around the temple. As the sign says all are welcome. It’s a place for all religions and races. Isn’t that lovely to hear?
And if ever you find yourself in Singapore and wanting a place to stay and wander, you should definitely check out Grand Mercure Singapore Roxy website for room availabilities!
Happy Sustainable Travels!
