Welcome to the first-ever Singapore Festival of Hinduism (SFH) to be held from 20 – 29 November 2020, organized by Hindu Centre Singapore. Learn more about the religion followed by 5% of Singapore’s population and who contribute to the vibrance and colour to the cultural and spiritual life of Singapore. 

Packed with 23 events over 10 days, the online Festival aims to inform, educate and entertain and is for all Singaporeans to learn more about Hinduism. The events cover everything from main tenets of Hinduism to important scriptures, explanations on Hindu iconography and deities, prayers, yoga, health and fitness, the science and art of home layout, holy places in the world for Hindus, temples in Singapore and temple etiquette, music and dance and much more.

The synopsis of each session and the bio of the presenter(s) are available in the Event Details.

The Festival is also positioned as an interfaith event to promote a better knowledge and appreciation of Hinduism as the religion is insufficiently understood despite being one of the major religions in the world.
