Little India, Singapore Overview

A trip to Singapore is incomplete without a visit to its famous Little India neighbourhood. With delicious aroma of food and vibrant colours teasing your senses, the place gives a feel of being in India with the discipline of Singapore.

The true spirit of Singapore lies in its diversity and the fusion of various cultures, which can be seen, dotted all over the city. One such place is Little India where multi-coloured houses line the street, lip-smacking food is found and the chanting of hymns and mantras at temples and mosques fill the air. Also known for cheap prices, the place is a paradise for shopping lovers. With a rich history going back to 200 years, Singapore even derives its name from the Sanskrit word ïSinghaÍ meaning Lion. This old Indian neighbourhood today thrives as a colourful place rich in traditions and values. Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple and several other such temples represent the true essence of the place. Cheap food, fascinating souvenirs, fresh vegetables and delicious smells makes this district worth a visit. Situated nearby is the Arab Quarter, where one can explore the famous Sultan Mosque built in year 1825, although non-Muslims are not allowed to go inside the prayer hall. For shopping Haji and Bali lane are the best spots.
