A walk around Little India Singapore

A walk around Little India Singapore

Singapore is such a multicultural city, that it even has four official languages: English, Chinese, Malay and Tamil. In exploring the different neighbourhoods, I took a walk around Little India.

The busy streets

There are many street vendors, shops and people, creating a constant buzz. Many colourful souvenirs and gold jewellery catch your attention. This is not a place for the quiet ones.

Among the busy streets, there is also Tan Teng Niah, a colourful house and street art that is just great for Instagram worthy photos.

Indian Heritage Centre

If the street buzz gets too much, especially in the hot afternoon sun, you can escape it by going to the museum. Indian Heritage Centre is located in the heart of Little India neighbourhood and it has AC! So it’s nicely chill and quiet, as opposed to the streets. Here you can learn about Indians in Singapore and there are also a few interactive activities.

The temples

A must do when visiting Little India is one of the temples. You need to take your shoes off before entering the temple. You can observe how locals keep the traditions, pray or just admire the beautiful and colourful temple building.

I went to Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple which is the biggest, but there are many more to explore.

The food

Now be prepared to try some very spicy food! I don’t usually eat spicy food, so I asked if the food was spicy. The lady told me that it’s a bit spicy so I took it. It was just the right amount of spicy. I can’t imagine how very spicy is like!
