7 Best Places to Visit Near Little India in Singapore – An Unseen Side of Singapore

Singapore is a country of multiplicity; it is multi-cultural, multi-ethnic and has a multitude of attractions. Given its small land area, almost everything is a stone's throw away and the well-networked MRT helps you get to places in double-quick time. Little India is a little treasure to explore; with multiple Indian eateries and shops that sell Indian goods, no one finds it a surprising name.

1

Shop at the Tekka Centre

The Tekka Centre is located in a simple building which is full of shops and restaurants that cater to an Indian palate. Locals of all ethnicities and a handful of tourists are seen entering and exiting frequently. Given its location by the main road, its popularity is obvious.

Bask in the Greenery of Fort Canning Park

Standing at a modest height, the Fort Canning Hill is a heritage of Singapore that is known to be the home for many fauna and flora. It consists of nine distinct gardens including the jubilee park, the spice garden and a botanical garden. There is a mobile application that has been built especially for the hill with features of augmented reality to guide visitors and help them have a pleasurable walk along the trail.

Visit the National Museum

The modern white building has a commanding presence and a mix of classical architecture in it. The facilities are state of the art and the layout is known to impress the visitors for being simple, easy to follow and clear. The guided tours have also gained popularity with most patrons opting for it.

Pay Homage at Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple

This glamorous temple with its intricate sculptures is a tribute to Goddess Kali. Those of the Hindu community flock on a regular basis to receive blessings while others visit to appreciate the beauty of the building. It is a short walk from the hotels in Serangoon Road Singapore and deserves some photography and admiration.

Eat at the Many Indian Restaurants

From Ananda Bhavan to Anjappar Chettinad to Ashok Tandoor and Komalas which is just down the road from Park Hotel Farrer Park, there are hundreds of Indian restaurants to choose from. Step in for a crispy wadei and portion of pakoras if you are between meals, but if you are close to lunch or dinner time, don't deny yourself the luxury of a flavourful meal.

Stop by at the Ever-Popular Sim Lim Square

This is the home of electronics, IT equipment and all kinds of gadgets that you can think of. There are multiple rows and blocks of shops that sell anything new or old from the digital world. Be cautious as they may try to rip you off, so don't hesitate to haggle.

Pray at the Church of the True Light

This is one of the oldest churches around and it had indeed had humble beginnings. The community attached to the church had contributed to erect the building as it grew in numbers. Today the church serves people from many parts of the world who converse in different languages, which is no easy feat.
