Singapore Chinatown, Singapore


Walls of fiery red with flashes of gold in between indicate the presence of Chinatown. This ever crowded neighborhood has always been bustling full of life & culture. This area houses various well known temples. An extremely popular one is the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple, a four storey temple with a stunning high ceilinged main hall, bell & drum tower & a two meter long solid gold stupa. A popular temple amongst Tamil Hindus is the gaudy Sri Mariamman Temple, dedicated to the Goddess of Disease & Protection, which acted as a former asylum for Tamil Hindu immigrants in olden days. Singapore’s oldest Chinese temple, Thian Hock Keng, boasts of intricately detailed painted doors, decorated beams & golden leafed panels which make it a must visit. The brightly painted building of Red Dot Design Museum, allows one to look at everyday objects from unlikely perspectives.

Singapore Coin & Notes Museum gives an idea about the evolution of Singapore’s currency. Chinatown Street Market is notable for selling a various range of objects from lucky cats to silk robes at dirt cheap prices. Aside from this lip smacking street food, such as dim sums and fried duck, is available. Singapore City Gallery, with its miniature displays, helps understand how modern Singapore came to be. Speaker’s Corner has witnessed several debates & protests over the years. The immaculate restored blue mansion, Baba House, is a wonderful place for visitors to understand households which existed centuries ago.
