Explore Little India in Full Colour
Located east of the Singapore River along Serangoon Road, Little India is a treat for all your senses.
Take your pick from 24-hour shopping at Mustafa Centre, tucking into a local breakfast at Tekka market, sniffing the aromatic fragrances of fresh jasmine flowers, or gawking at the multi-coloured statues at the Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple.
Contrary to stereotypes, Little India is both multi-cultural and multi-faceted. While South Indian culture can very much be seen and felt here, Chinese clan associations, multi religious buildings, and a variety of clothing, hardware, and second-hand stores co-exist comfortably with those peddling traditional wares such as Indian spices and jewellery. More recently, artisanal cafés and hipster joints have been welcomed into the fold.
A serendipitous romp around the streets of Little India will surely turn up surprising and colourful finds. It may even evoke what author Marthe Troly-Curtin describes, “Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time."
The PARKROYAL on Kitchener Road team lets you in on where to experience the best tastes, sights, and sounds of Singapore’s most colourful neighbourhood.
