Little India Attractions

This colorful Singapore neighborhood boasts an interesting history going back to the early 1800s. Similar to Australia's founding as a British penal colony, Little India was founded as a colony for prisoners of the Britsh Raj. It grew into an Indian enclave that today is home to restaurants, shops and art galleries steeped in Indian Tamil culture. Visitors discover wonderful treasures from gorgeous textiles to jewellery. Some of the most popular vegetarian restaurants are in Little India. During the Deepavali Festival of Lights, Little India truly shines with color, light and music that is simply magical.
