Built in 1855 by Tamil labourers, the temple has a South Indian architectural style. The gopuram or tower, a common element in South Indian temple architecture, was built at a height so that it can be seen from a distance.

It is hard to miss this temple in Little India Town, very colorful and intricately created. Well worthy of a photograph!

Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple is at the heart of Little India. It is in every respect a fascinating temple with plenty of character, detail and history. Indian culture forms a major slice of Singaporean history and it is vividly on display in the near by streets.

The temple is very huge and conveniently located on the main road. Recently refurbished, it is very well-maintained. Must visit for those who wish to get a glimpse of the Indian culture and religious practises in Singapore.

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

Will this be the best sequence? We want to see and experience as much as possible, but worry about the heat and humidity - we do not want to be back tracking needlessly. Some air conditioned respite from the heat along the way would be good, especially if we can sit and rest for a while - thinking a mid morning coffee or tea break but no idea where.
