we only visited briefly and didn't go inside, we were more than happy to simply stand outside and take it all in. The workmanship that goes into something like this is astonishing and has to be seen to be believed

This Hindu temple has colourful intricate designs on its walls and is all round a stunning place to visit. As a fully functioning temple there were many people praying and undertaking various rituals while I was there but I never felt unwelcome. People were friendly there and I would highly recommend this place to visit!

If you want to see a decent Hindu Temple because you've never been to one, this is the one to visit. It's ornate and has a lot to see inside in a small area. There is a temple in Chinatown that is not worth seeing. But this one is good and you can spend a good 15 minutes inside just... More

Located in little india. Very colourful Hindu temple. Veerakaliyamman is main god. Lot of indian hindu people used to worship in this temple. Walkable distance from little india MRT. Avoid Sunday evening because of too much crowd.

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.
