I always worship this temple whenever I walk pass it. This temple is popular among tourists and Indians esp workers who like to pray to the Kaliamman deity here. This temple is said to be proven holy and helpful to a lot of poor people. I believe if you pray wholeheartedly to this deity your wishes will come true.

A beautiful indian temple on the streets of Little India. The place had intense hindu vibes with idols of gods and goddess all around. The temple is built according to dravidian style of architecture and conducts prayers at around 6:30pm, which is time you would want to visit the temple if you would want to experience the true indian vibes. They also served free hotchpotch (spicy rice and lentils) during the saturday evening i visited and it was yum.

Located in the heart of Little India on Serangoon Road, Sri Veeramakaliamman is the most prominent and popular Hindu Temple. For me Little India is temples and food. I do not know if this is the oldest as some claim but I can assure you it was the most popular. We visited just after seeing Sri Srinivasa and the crowds here were vastly greater. Sri Srinivasa was extremely colorful with a very high Gopuram; however, the details at Sri Veeramakaliamman both inside and out were amazing. The thing that caught my eye here was this was the only Gopuram where the figures had gold features. When the sun hits it, the figures sparkle. The other part was the detail inside was much more exquisite and decorative. Sri Veeramakaliamman is to Hindu temples as Baroque/Rococo is to European churches. Its dripping in figures and symbols. I must confess that I really did not understand it all; however, for the cultural and enjoyment value, this is the best Hindu temple to visit and our favorite in Singapore

This is the oldest Hindu temple , and is in the middle of Chinatown , The main door is very impressive and ornate above , inside although the main area was colourful with vivid ceilings there was an air that it is slightly run down . Walking around the main yard you do come across the mass statues on the roofs. To take pictures within is S$3
