Our Advice: Remember to remove your shoes before entry.

One of the oldest Hindu temples in Little India, the very first thing that will catch your attention is the intricately crafted dome of the Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple. Constructed in Dravidian architecture reminiscent of the temples in the Southern part of India, the Hindu place of worship offers a visual palette filled with colour and symbolism. When you step inside the strong visual code does not dissipate. Your eyes will witness a powerful goddess garlanded with artificial human skulls! This is the goddess Kali – Destroyer of Evil.

Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple, a confluence of the South and East of India where the goddess is revered, was built for the early Indian settlers of Serangoon Road. The temple was a source of security and familiarity for the early migrants and now a centre of religious, cultural and social activities for the local Hindu population.
