Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple (141 Serangoon Road)

Built by Bengali labourers in 1881, this temple dedicated to Goddess Kali is one of the oldest Hindu temples in Singapore. She is known as the Goddess of Power and the name "Veeramakaliamman" means "Kali the Courageous".

On holy days (Tuesdays and Fridays), the streets are busy with devotees on their way to pray, worship and make requests to Kali for blessings. The temple is closed between 12.30 p.m. and 4 p.m. everyday. Note that women who are undergoing the monthly cycle are considered "unclean" and are not allowed to enter temple grounds.
