Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple


In celebration of Valentine’s Day (and Galentine’s Day), we popped by my favorite temple, Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple on Serangoon Road, before tucking into the best chole bhature in Little India. The temple is dedicated to the goddess Kali, the fiercest of the Hindu deities. The temple was built in 1881 by indentured Bengali laborers working at nearby lime pits.
