Little India Singapore

Wondering what to do in Singapore? Visit Little India and the Singapore Flyer, two of Singapore’s top attractions!

When in Singapore, make sure you explore Little India – the ethnic neighborhood located on the western side of the Singapore River, in Rochor, just across of Chinatown. Locals call it the Tekka, many Tamil immigrants live here, that’s why the Tamil cultural elements dominate the neighborhood. But this is not the only ethnic group living in the neighborhood. You will find the main commercial street in Little India between Rochor Canal Road and Bukit Timah Sungei Road. The Serangoon Road is the home to the Tekka Centre, Serangoon Plaza, the Mustafa Center – where shops never close – and much more. If you really want to experience the best of Singapore shopping, then make sure you head towards there! But there’s more to Little India than shopping…. Visit special sites like Singapore Hindu temples, Muslim worship places, like Jalan Mosque, and a church called Kampong Kapor. One of the famous temples in the street is the Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple, designed in a Dravidian style, this temple is dedicated to the Hindu goddess Kali. The number of temples in Little India Singapore is huge, so make sure to learn more about them before you visit, and chose your favorite.
