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.

Excellent temple, very artistic and divine experience visiting the temple. Lord Shiva can also be prayed in this temple besides lord ganesh and Subramanya. Mostly crowded over weekends avoid visiting this temple on saturday/sunday due to heavy rush

Visited this Hindu temple as part of a walking tour. The temple was great to visit . A very peaceful place. It is worth a visit but is better with a guide who can explain all the traditions etc.

What a great building from both an architectural and spiritual perspective. Easy enough to get to via one of the tourist bus companies or from the MRT on the main Serangoon Road, you can't exactly miss it! A local guy I'm working with advised to avoid Little India on a Sunday as that's when the place can get very busy... More
