Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple, Singapore

4.3
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.

  • Put in bag and take your shoes off and stolen shoes seems to get embarrassed because, while they visited. In India who was close to leaving the bag out of shoes and were scolded in WOW. Do not leave outside shoes seems to have. We recommend that comes with the shoes stolen sandals or even better the.

  • The most colorful Temple Sri Veramakaliammana Hindu temple in Singapore's Little India. Sri Veeramakaliamman temple dedicated to the goddess Kali, the Shakti incarnation of God Shiva and his wife Parvati. Kali wears a Garland of skulls. Her sons Ganesha and Murugan. Temple gathers the four prayer worshippers in day. We got the whole idea with the removal of the sculpture, playing musical instruments and dancing

  • I'm not sure if this is an Indian temple or a Buddhist temple but it is a very interesting building and a good place to visit. The surrounding area is full of low costing shops where you can buy almost anything, including food souvenirs and clothing. I spent several hours walking around this area of town looking through all the stores.
  • Nice looking and very colorful Hindu or Indian temple at Little India. I didn't go inside. But the outside architecture is quite cool. And COLORFUL.
  • Particularly interesting to see how many Gods a culture can adore. You can really feel passion on the people visiting the temple.
