This is just beside the Chinatown. I am able to go here because this is just near to my hostel in Singapore. A good place to appreciate religious structure.

The temple was closed when I was there. However, just the gopuram is more than worth the detour. It is simply stunning !

This temple is right in the heart of Little India, Singapore. One of the very well known temples built here by earliest Indians.

I will visit there by every Friday evening to get the blessing of veerama kali amman blessings..I found that Little India's most colorful, visually stunning temple is dedicated to the ferocious goddess Kali, depicted wearing a garland of skulls, ripping out the insides of her victims, and sharing more tranquil family moments with her sons Ganesh and Murugan. The temple... More

This was interesting to see, as I'd never seen a temple like this. The Hindu temples in Bali or more ancient and stone with less deities. This place had the plentiful statues of deities painted in many bright colors.

I visited here as part of a Little India walking tour. I didn't go in but did enjoy taking shots of the outside of the temple

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

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.
