This is an old picture of the Sri Mariamman Temple, the oldest Hindu temple of Singapore. For all you crazy letter enthusiasts, this is the Tamil spelling: ஸ்ரீ மாரியம்மன் கோவில்.

These stamps commemorates 49 years of independence. Singapore gained independence from the UK in 1965 after a referendum, just like Scotland did 50 years later.
