The Darma Muneeswaran Temple at Serangoon North Avenue1 has been in existences at its current site for more than one hundred years.

It was started as a simple shrine under a Bodhi tree, sometime around 1900. A community of about 30 Indian families residing in the vicinity, mostly involved in cattle-rearing activities, probably erected the shrine to protect themselves. It was- and still is common practice for a Muneeswaran deity to be installed as a guardian at the entrance to an estate village. The shrine then comprised only a flat, semi-spherical granite stone with inscriptions, and a Trident placed under a tree. The granite stone is now embedded below Lord Darma Muneeswaran in the current temple complex, while the Trident remains in its original site at the Bodhi tree.
