4.2/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web
Pause from the hustle and bustle of the downtown and retreat to Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple, an intricate Hindu temple tucked away within the city. The temple is dedicated to the Hindu goddess Kali, the goddess associated with empowerment. The temple's design differs greatly from those in more northeastern parts of the country, following a style more prevalent among South Indian Tamil temples. The temple was built by Indian pioneers and settlers who migrated to the area; it is one of the first testaments to their growing cultural base in Singapore. Colorful, intricate sculptures and figures adorn both the interior and exterior of the temple. Your best bet is to visit with a guide who can provide insight into the temple's history and significance. Be aware that visitors are expected to remove their shoes as a sign of respect. Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Singapore Edition.

  • Is going to Singapore and would always visit Hindu temples. You can see the buildings and temples of Japan completely different. Also with the loud music monks dedicated prayer to God. When listening to the music, I have magical powers.

  • A colourful temple with ornate carvings and a beautiful wooden door with shining brass bells! The Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple is welcoming to all who may have an interest in the offerings of Hindu temples. We participated in the evening service led by the priests in the accompaniment of a trumpeter and drummer. Awesome!
  • Holy Hindu temple ..Very colorful and vibrant......structured in South Indian Style . I have been visiting this Temple on my every trip to Singapore since 1983 . Although the temple is very old but till today the temple has been very well maintained and well kept by the management. No bar on people of other religions to go inside.
  • Magnificent temple .Kudos to the management. Navin Khanna
  • The place itself is nice and colorful. Excellent representation of what India should be. Indian men keep on inconveniently starring at foreign women. My wife felt unsafe there.
  • Nice temple and nice building.
