It was popular with visitors and locals alike and all welcome though need to observe customs like removing shoes. There was some construction... More

This well located temple was very busy due to the Thaipusum festival that was taking place, yet still remained a pleasure to see.

If you are in Singapore then it is a must that you visit some of its many temples, and this one is beautiful. Some fantastic sculptures and a wonderful piece of history. If you get the chance take a look inside - we didn't have time and I regret it now.

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

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.
