Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple

The most prominent shrine on Serangoon Road, the Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple has
a fanciful gopuram that’s flanked by lions atop the temple walls. The temple is dedicated
to Kali, the Hindu goddess of power or energy, and within the mandapam (worship
hall) are several depictions of her with ten arms; some have blue skin and fangs, while
others show her apparently trampling on her husband Lord Shiva, recalling an episode
from the Hindu scriptures.
