Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple, Singapore

4.2
#9 of 57 in Historic Sites in Singapore
Religious Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • 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.
  • A temple with unique architectural design. It is visited by countless Indians. What I like about this temple are the colorful status and the lively rituals. Lastly, It's free to enter just make sure you remove your shoe.
