Little India Singapore

This modest but colorful area of Little India is a relief from the prim modernity of many parts of the city. Centred around the southern end of Serangoon Road, this is the place to come to pick up that framed print of a Hindu god you have always wanted, eat great vegetarian food and watch streetside cooks fry chapatis.

Little India is also subdivided, yet into 4 parts, namely, Lower Serangoon Road, Central Serangoon Road, Upper Serangoon Road and the Arab Quarter. In Lower Serangoon Road, there are many places worth the full exploration. Many temples and shop houses located beyond Kitchener Road, a real shopping arcade in Little India. The special tip that visitors ought to know is that you should visit Little India at dawn as to avoid shopping among the crowd as well as with the heat. Heading up Serangoon Road through Kitchener will lead you to Central Serangoon Road where many Indian cafes, clothing shops, and hardware stores are sited. There are several interesting places that worth the visit in upper Serangoon Road. The most interesting one is Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple built in 1855 in order to attribute to the Hindu deities Sri Srinivasa Perumal. The Arab atmosphere is here as its community has been settled here even prior to the arrival of Sir Stamford Raffles. Tracing back to 1888, the architects from Swan and MacLaren built The Church of Our Lady Lourdes in the neo-Gothic style as of the purpose to be worshipped by the Tamil and the Chinese Catholics. Sultan Mosque is the highlight here as well. It is sited between Bencoolen and Arab Streets.
