Singapore

Little India

In the 19th century the 'Raffles Plan' divided up what was the trading post of Singapore into various ethnic groups. These areas still exist today and make visiting Singapore quite diverse as you move from one area to another.

Little India was an area that I hadn't seen in a long time and decided to go there during my last stopover in Singapore. I caught the MRT (the subway) to the Little India station and then walked along Serangoon Road, which is the main commercial centre of Little India.

Just next to the MRT station were these colourful buildings.

The Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple






Little India has a quite distinct feel and smell to it, the smell of spices. The buildings are brightly coloured, in contrast to the more pastel shades of the Chinatown area.
