Little India in Singapore

Little India is a vibrant ethnic district of Singapore showing the best of Singapore's Indian heritage and community, located east of the river and a short walk from Orchard Road.  We wander over and first visit a great food court with dozens of stalls and tables to seat large crowds of hungry people.

Walking through the streets, we run across fabulous murals painted on the sides of the buildings along the way.

The Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple is one of the oldest temples in Singapore, built in 1855 and dedicated to Lord Vishnu, with a tall tower showing the various incarnations of Vishnu, one of the principal deities of Hinduism.

 We enter and explore the intriguing alters, sculptures, and displays of this active temple.

Exiting the temple, we wander through a few back streets of Little India toward Kampong Glam, the Malay-Muslim district of Singapore.
