Day 2: On the Road in Singapore


On our first day in Singapore, we ventured over to Little India to visit Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple.  It is one of the oldest Hindu temples in the city, built by the early Indian laborers and dedicated to Kali, the  goddess and destroyer of all evil. On the outside is an explosion of colorful deities adorning the entrance tower.

We were fortunate to visit the temple during the daily puja (prayer) session lead by the priest. It started with a bathing ceremony and and ended with a sacred flame offering while rousing music is played.  It was the first time I’ve every been inside a Hindu temple and witnessed a prayer session.  Hopefully, I am blessed with a good rest of the trip.
