Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple, Singapore

(4.2/5 based on 280+ 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.

  • The temple is dedicated to Kali and Parvati, Shiva's wife, incarnations of two unity "dark" and "light" the manifestation of the goddess. The temple more than a hundred years, it was built by the Tamils of South India.

  •  India Street, Arab Street and bath discovered during the move. This admission from the bus was off really is better if you visit. In a striking building, surprised at its exterior decoration.

  • A first of all: here, you are very welcome as disturbing. This is possible in many other temples, but here is not considering practically, what is actually total acceptance. Inside, there is a prayer room which is certainly always well attended. It is a constant coming and going. Only the high priest may be in the Holy of Holies, but repeatedly coming out to bless the faithful, etc. There is still an area outdoors, which is equipped with statuettes of various Holy/deities. The faithful remain short prayer and did not disturb us. It was a really impressive and soothing experience. For more information please visit our blog: joinourjourneys

  • 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 !
  • Was close on Friday around 230pm. Says will be open back at 4pm. Looks very beautiful from the outside. Really wish I can see the inside. Will be back!
