Things to see in Little India
Serangoon Road is the main artery that cuts through the heart of Little India. Packed with dusty liquor stores, traditional tailors, and fruit and vegetable stalled, a walk along this thoroughfare will acquaint you with the area’s sights, sounds and smells. Perhaps the most famous of all is the Mustafa Center—a 24-hour mall spread across 5 floors which offers everything from clothes through electronics to money exchange. Serangoon Road also houses the area’s most famous temple. The exterior of Sri Veeramakaliamman is decorated with hundreds of colored statues and this 19th-century temple still welcomes throngs of worshippers on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. Another well-known sight is the brightly colored facade of the House of Tan Teng Niah. Originally built by Chinese colonists, the building has since been decorated in bright colors by the local Indian community—making it a perfect metaphor for the district’s ethnic diversity.

How to get to Little India
Little India can be quite hectic, so getting a taxi here may be a little complicated. The roads are busy and crowded, so taking public transport or choosing to walk are the best options for travelers. The easiest way to get into the area is by MRT train, with nearby stops including Little India, Farrer Road, and Bugis. The MRT also connects travelers to Changi Airport, one of the main points of entry into Singapore. Seletar International Airport is a further option.
