This is one of the older Indian temples in Little India area. A huge temple complex area consisting of main temple, seperate area for conducting marriage and rituals, dining area etc. After having darshan, one can take the free prasad consisting of Kesari Sheera and puliogere rice.

The first thing that struck me about this temple was the ornate decorative features inside and out. This was soon overtaken by the complete reverence shown by worshippers and visitors that this temple commanded. It was truly amazing. Inside you can witness blessings, offerings and other traditions being carried out. There are various shrines positioned throughout the complex each with... More

Drums beating and trumpets flaring. Bells ringing and clanging. The high decibel is on par with a jackhammer. You wouldn't want to risk your ear drum bursting to step inside the arena. The temple could have make soothing music instead of pure noise to appease the angry Kali god. Definitely not recommended.

A little temple in little India. Inside it looks 'exactly' like you are in India. The temple was quite busy on the day we walked in. Many Hindu's came to celebrate a special day with a lot of offerings. As they have those days often it is worth to ask if such a special day is during your stay.

It's a nice South Indian temple. It has lot of idols of different gods & goddesses. It almost felt like any temple in Chennai. Quite authentic. Definitely recommended if you are near Little India.

This is a lovely temple to walk past as you walk down Serangoon road. But I wouldn't go out of your way, unless you are going to go in. It is intricate, and in the heart of Little India. There are shops close by too.

It doesn't take long to check out but it's worth doing so. It's very colorful and quite a sight to see.

Located in Little India this is a very active Hindu Temple. Very colorful 3-d figurines decorate the outside entrance with several different worshiping areas inside. It was a special occasion when we visited and there were many floral offering inside with many parishioners praying to various deities. Remove your shoes to enter and be respectful of the activities ongoing and... More

Staying in Little India

Neighbourhood 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 coloured saris patronize retailers from decades past. Peruse streets lined with colourful 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 Centre, 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 colourful, lively taste of the subcontinent and is well worth the visit.
