Little India is an ethnic neighbourhood found in Singapore that has Tamil cultural elements and aspects of other cultures. Little India lies to east of the Singapore River—across from Chinatown, located west of the river—and north of Kampong Glam. Both areas are part of the urban planning area of Rochor. Little India is more commonly known as Tekka in the local Tamil community. Even though its nice to walk around little india, but the cherry of the pie would be the Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple.

The Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple is dedicated to the Hindu goddess Kali, fierce embodiment of Shakti and the god Shiva’s wife, Parvati. Kali has always been popular in Bengal, the birthplace of the labourers who built this temple in 1881.

Inside the temple, there is ample space for a lens of focal length of 50mm and below and enough light is available for most cameras and lens. Than again I visited the temple during aftternoon time around 4pm.
