Postcard titled 'Singapore South Bridge Road' depicting Sri Mariamman Temple and Jamae Mosque

This postcard depicts Sri Mariamman Temple, built by Naraina Pillai on South Bridge Road. The temple was later enlarged in 1843. Beside the temple, in the foreground of the image, is Masjid Jamae (also known as Masjid Chulia or Jamae Mosque), built by Muslims from Southern India in 1827. The coexistence of the Hindu temple beside a mosque, within a district often referred to as Chinatown, is an early example of multiculturalism in Singapore.
