Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple, Singapore

4.2
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.

  • We were in Little India for Deepvali and we wanted to visit the Temple, as we usually do when in the area. I find that no matter how busy it is in here, there is a really peaceful spiritual atmosphere...  more »
  • Temple at Tekka Centre because up to Mustafa Centre, Serangoon Road was stopped by chance. Became believers came to feel, while being the temple rules such as shoes and shoulder hide aimlessly like tourists and visitors do not mix light chaos is kind of interesting. Interior is flashy. Glamorous. Hindu Mythology that you know will change the way forward, but also don't know to design every single makes interesting reading. Precincts not spacious, briefly look even a little time around. Not if you stay 10-15 minutes you can enjoy the 10-minute?

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Particularly interesting to see how many Gods a culture can adore. You can really feel passion on the people visiting the temple.
  • Temple is right next to road placed in centre of little India. Peaceful and less crowded , can offer lot of puja. Near by lots if shops and food places.
  • 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.

At the eastern end of the road, you'll find more luxurious and expensive options, with hotels located in impressive colonial-era architecture. North and south of this main artery, backpacker hostels and budget hotels provide affordable rooms with basic facilities.
