After visiting the Arcade in Little India, we decided to visit the Temple, my first Hindu experience. This temple is dedicated to Hindu goddess Kali. With such a rich religion, you will find figurative paintings and sculptures of Ganesha, Shiva, Brahma, and other gods/goddess. Be ready to take off your shoes and wash your feet before entering.

Amazing experience! Never been inside a Hindu temple before. I was very excited to see the inside of this temple and observe how Indians worship. Statues are everywhere. Weird and interesting statues of their Gods. The place is tourist friendly, but you would still feel how solemn this place is. Pictures can be taken inside. For a tourist like me... More

Very interesting temple. Quite compact but contains some of the most violent depections of Kali you'll see. Quite fascinating/

This temple is built in the the style of South Indian Tamil temple. The Temple is dedicated to the Hindu goddess Kali. There are some interesting statues, inside the temple, such as Kali wearing a garland of skulls and ripping out the insides of her victims, and Kali sharing more peaceful family moments with her sons Ganesha and Murugan.

We came here with a guide who thoroughly explained what every statue shown stands for. You can come into this beautiful temple and take (no flash) pictures while other people are praying in the temple at the same time and priests walk around. This makes it all very authentic. Recommended!

The outside figures are smaller than expected from the photos but the inside is amazing. This is authentic stuff and make sure you are wearing the right clothing and take your shoes off. You need to respect the people praying and make sure you do not stray into areas you should not go. A busy place with music playing and... More

We went there to see what a hindu temple looks like. And we are amazed with the "design" of the temple and how hinhu's pray and venerate their gods.

If you are curious and had never visited a Hindu Temple, this is a visitor friendly one to visit. Just note the dress code of no shorts & sexy clothings (for the ladies).

Staying in Little India

Neighborhood Profile
Little India
With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander past traditional barbershops while local residents in brightly colored saris patronize retailers from decades past. Peruse streets lined with colorful shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge. Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts and take in the stalls selling bright flowers, fabrics, and spices. At the 24-hour, four-level Mustafa Shopping Center, you can shop through the night and find everything from pharmacy and grocery items to Bollywood DVDs and diamond necklaces. Singapore’s Little India offers a colorful, lively taste of the subcontinent and is well worth the visit.
