About Little India, Singapore

Fellow Indians will never feel as if they’ve left their homeland, once they visit this place. Today, Little India is one of Singapore’s most vibrant and colorful districts, along with a kaleidoscope of cultural influences. This neighborhood becomes livelier during the festivals of Diwali/Deepavali (October or November) and Pongal (mid-January). The lifelike sculpture adorned Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple, is one of Singapore’s oldest Hindu temples & is dedicated to the Goddess Kali. With various depictions of scenes with Kali’s garland of skulls and destroying her enemies, it proves to be an unforgettable attraction.

The Abdul Gafoor Mosque, features Arabian and Renaissance style architecture. Serangoon Road is the main commercial hub here. It is the site of Tekka Centre, Singapore’s largest indoor ‘wet’ market which sells an incredible array of produce and uncommon ingredients; the 24x7 open Mustafa Centre, which stocks roughly 300,000 items and offers services like visa processing; and lastly Little India Arcade, where one can pick up knick-knacks, costume jewelry and souvenirs, such as delectable Indian sweets from Moghul Sweet Shop. With five floors of ethnic products, ranging from jasmine garlands to Indian cosmetics, Jothi Store & Flower Shop is always busy. The South Indian restaurant Banana Leaf Apolo, at Race Course Road, is popular for its cuisine. Most notably, the local delicacy of fish head curry, making it a must try.
