Really interesting temple built over 150 years ago. The devotees are very helpful and friendly and happy to explain the various parts on the temple of which they are so rightly proud. Couple this with a walk through the markets of Little India.

I guess I've spent too much time visiting temples in India and so I'm perhaps not as impressed by the temples in Singapore as I might otherwise be. This one is certainly attractive, with plenty of attention to detail in the statue work, and particularly at the main entrance. If you have a powerful camera it's worth bringing it along... More

This temple is beutiful and there is a lot to see inside. You are allowed to take pictures inside. Do not forget to take off your shoes before entering the temple.

Stumbled upon this temple whilst out exploring Little India, and I'm very glad I did. This temple was a marvellous little sanctuary for the spirit, it was breathtaking how big and beautiful it was. I'm glad I got the chance to visit!

This is a very interesting temple. It is quite large with several rooms and an outside area to explore. As with all Hindu temples you have to remove your shoes before entering. It was filled with people all participating in various rituals. There were just a handful of what looked like tourists. There were some quite disturbing statues and I... More

Very cool. The culture is very authentic, this temple is cool. We got here on the hop-on-hop-off bus, which was ok.

This temple exhibits beautiful colors and interesting decor. You really should pay a visit during your stay in Singapore. It's also fascinating to watch people as they worship here. It was a great cultural experience.

I am definitely a culture and temple person... I'd rather spend a week looking at temples like this rather than 5 minutes in a modern shopping Mall so this attraction was right up my street. Situated in Singapore's Little India district and built in 1855 by Tamil labourers working the lime kilns the Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple is dedicated to the... More

The most beautiful Hindu Temple in Singapore, no doubt. Strategically located within Little India, 600 meters from the nearest MRT station. Connected well with SBS Buses, taxies available. Interior of the temple - majestic and beautiful. Clean and petite. Dr.Ruben Kumar Maniam Malaysia

Colorful temple with a huge collection of painted statues. Make sure to take your shoes off outside. A quick walk around will suffice to see the various statues of gods. I had no idea what kind of service or even if it was a service going on, but it was very lively and interesting.
