What to Do in Little India

All Little India Attractions A to Z

If in Singapore, the sound of Indian music and incense drifts on the breeze, it can only mean one thing: you are in Little India. Little India lies east of the Singapore River with the busy Serangoon Road as its centre point. Many visitors come to this area for shopping and dining, especially on Indian vegetarian food. There are countless restaurants and cafés as well as food stalls, making Little India the best area in Singapore to enjoy good and inexpensive subcontinental food. Visitors will be amazed at what this area has to offer. The popular Mustafa Centre operates on a 24/7 basis and it's best to avoid it on Sundays as the centre and indeed most shops in Little India are usually too crowded on that day.

Another popular draw in Little India is their good exchange rates – probably the best in town. Little India offers the taste of authenticity and there are a lot of places to explore when it comes to culture. For example the oldest temple in Little India, Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple, Abdul Gafoor Mosque, Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple and Sakyamuni Buddha Gaya Temple.

Abdul Gafoor Mosque

The original Abdul Gafoor Mosque dates back to 1859 – it was built to serve South Indian Muslim merchants and those who worked at the old race course at Farrer Park. After years of renovations, the mosque has a unique architectural style of Southern Indian, Moorish, and Victorian influences. 

A must-see at Abdul Gafoor Mosque is the Arabic-style glass cupola, which is supported by Roman pillars inspired by Roman architecture. Like many religious sites around the world, do dress modestly if you’re planning to visit the mosque.
