Little India, a place considered the center of the large Indian community in Singapore, is one of the most colourful, attractive, and culturally-significant place to visit in Singapore.
Despite Little India’s relatively small, and compact area — tourist attractions are close to each other, you can visit all the significant sights in one day — but the sights, sounds and smells ever present in the place represent India so well. While at Little India, don’t miss the intricately decorated temples — Temple of Thousand Lights, Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple, and Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple — that give visitors a glimpse of the beliefs of Hinduism. Take the chance to shop at the famous Mustafa Center where you can find some of the most unique souvenir items from Singapore.
Little India is located at Serangoon Road, Singapore.
