Sri Vairavimada Kaliamman Temple

overview

Sri Vairavimada Kaliamman Temple is one of the oldest temples in Singapore. Originally erected at Killiney Road, the temple was relocated two more times before it finally moved to Toa Payoh.

The original temple structure at Killiney Road was in the path of a proposed railway line which was to run from Tank Road to the Causeway in Woodlands. As such, the local municipal railway authorities negotiated with the temple’s trustees and bought over the temple’s land for the purpose of constructing the new railway lines. Trustees of the temple then erected a new structure on vacant land at Orchard Road. Unfortunately, the railway authorities once again acquired land owned by the temple and it had to be relocated for the second time. In 1921, a new piece of land at 21 Somerset Road (just in front of the Telecoms building) was purchased for building the temple. The temple structure at this location was constructed by the Mohammedan and Hindu Endowments Board in 1933. A consecration ceremony was held on 6th December 1933 following its completion.

Etiquette

What to wear when visiting a Hindu Temple?

1 The basic dress code when visiting a Hindu Temple is: shoulders must be covered (easily done with a scarf or a shawl) and trousers or skirts must cover at least knees. 4 Socks are fine, visitors can keep wearing them unless the temple floor is made of marble or any other slippery stone and it may be best to remove socks too.
2 It is best to avoid anything too tight, too short and too revealing. Generally it is better to wear too much rather than too little when visiting a temple. 5 Footwear should be removed outside the temple. Most temples will have a space designated for footwear to be left safely.
3 For those who are not appropriately dressed, temples do provide shawls, cover-ups and wraps.
