Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple, Singapore

(300+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
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.

  • 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!
  • Very popular temple among local who have realised the power of prayers from here. A must go for tourists to have a memorable experience... A tip, if you know little story behind the gods it would be useful !
