I stayed in little india throughout my vacation in Singapore, so its an opportunity for me to visit places around to observe culture and worship. This is the nearest temple to most of the establishment in little india. The Indians invited me to get inside the temple and join the worship. I was amazed by their rituals, and they're praising...

It's a small and beautiful temple in Little India area with significant decoration. Many local residents and tourists visit it. You can take stunning view from here together with walk around to enjoy the great architecture. Learning about the story was also great!

My wife, two children and I visited Singapore in June 2016. The Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple is on Serangoon Road in Little India. This is a typical Hindu temple. You have to take your shoes off before you can go inside. I think you can visit this temple in about 15 minutes and then continue your walk on Serangoon Road.

This is a very busy temple and full of life. There is a lot going on around you so just take the time to enjoy what is going on around you. Remember to walk around the outside of it as part of your enjoyment.

This temple is on a busy road in little India- if you are in the area its worth a quick visit to see the ornate roof. There are lots of tourist - when I was there a school party was looking around the temple so it gets very busy on the paths around. Cross the road and opposite you will... More

This is a Hindu temple located in the heart of Little India. One of the oldest Indian temples in Singapore, it is intricately detailed and colourful and dedicated to the Hindu goddess Kali. Visitors should have appropriate dressing and removal of shoes before entry as a mark of respect.

Views from outside are beautiful, with colorful gods and goddesses! The same is true inside where I saw more statues that Hindus pray to. I slowly and quietly walked around, taking pictures of the statues, observing the priests and people praying. Entrance is FREE. Worth my time, unlike that similar one located in Chinatown!

The temple will certainly catch your eye from a distance. It is visited by locals and tourists. Beautiful. You must take off your shoes before entering.

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.
