Sri Layan Sithi Vinayagar Temple was constructed in 1925 by Hindu Chettiers from South India, who came to Singapore mainly as money-lenders. Sri Layan Sithi Vinayagar Temple was intended as a shrine for Vinayagar – another name for Ganesha, the Elephant God. It was frequented by workers from the nearby hospital (which is still there) and prison (which is not). It’s still popular with worshippers at weekends.
