Ranked 228 among Places to Visit in Singapore
Time Required: 2-3 hours
Tekka Centre is a bustling hawker centre, located in Singapore's colourful neighbourhood of Little India. Housing the biggest 'wet' market of Singapore, this brightly painted building also stores a wide array of products from vibrant Indian clothing to biryani! Built in 1982, the Tekka Centre closed down for a significant renovation project in 2008. Once it reopened in 2009, the new revamped Tekka Centre became a cleaner and more-organised place to shop in. Colours are not the only sector where this market is rich in, but also in culture. People of several ethnic backgrounds visit and run this place- from the locals to Indians to the Malays. As a result, Tekka centre is a learning ground for the culture of Singapore.
With over 284 stalls in its wet market, the range of items available is excellent, and ingredients which are rarely found elsewhere, are found here in abundance, like Shark fins. However, Tekka Centre isn't the only feature of this multi-complex market. It is also home to a dry-market, a food court and a shopping area.
