SRI VEERAMAKALIAMMAN TEMPLE:

Overview:
Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple is one of the oldest temples in Singapore, which was built by Indian pioneers who came to work and live in Singapore.

Known as a destroyer of evil, the presence of goddess Sri Veeramakaliamman, the chief deity of the temple answered an important need of the early migrants to feel secure in a new land. During World War II when there were air raids, many took refuge here in this temple. The temple and those within escaped the bombings unscathed.

Major reconstruction on the temple in the 1980s added a distinctive gate-tower, eight main domes and several other minor ones, which makes this one of the most spectacular experiences in Singapore.
