Little India is an exciting ethnic district, steeped in cultural history. The place represents the best of Singapore Indian community that is culturally vibrant, piquing historical interest and yet a shopping haven.
Historically, Little India was known for its racecourse. In 1840, many Europeans lived there and participated on the racecourse. Later, cattle trading become the main activity. As more traders hired Indian migrant workers, the trade became predominantly occupied by the Indians.
Many Indian trades took root there providing essential goods and service. Mosque and Hindu temples were built there. Of note is the Sir Veeramakaliamman Temple which is the oldest and distinctive landmark in Little India.
Today, newer businesses are located right next to traditional trades. Boutique hotels, modern eateries and other newer businesses are rejuvenating the traditional landscape of Little India into one of Singapore’s most vibrant districts.
Walking down Little India, you can take in many historical and colorful sights thanks to the conservation effort. This is also the right place to enjoy authentic and delectable South Indian vegetarian food as well as North Indian tandoori specials.
