General College & University
“Blessed Vedic Havan every Sunday at 10am. The folks there know the vedic chants, and it is a very pleasant environment. A high-quality, sumptuous lunch is served after the prayer. Prayers last about an hour and a half. If you are visiting Singapore and would enjoy participating in vedic chanting - this is a wonderful event. And I mean participate - as books in both Sanskrit and English are provided for you to follow/read along.”

Church
“Singapore’s Church of Our Lady of Lourdes is an impressive neo-Gothic Catholic Church, which is modelled on the Lourdes (France) church with the same name. Inside the Church is a grotto (cave) with statues of Our Lady appearing to Saint Bernadette. Opened in 1888, Church of Our Lady of Lourdes is the first Tamil Catholic church in Singapore. It bears a resemblance to “San Thome Basilica” in Chennai, which was also built around the same time (1893). After visiting this church, I understood the magnificence of Gothic architecture, to allow light into the building as there was no electric lighting then.”
