Colours of Little India
Former house of Tan Teng Niah

In Singapore, you cannot ignore the colours of Little India. Why? Little India has many things to offer and most of the things are colourful and attractive.

Little India is one of the most popular destinations in Singapore. As an important place for the Indian community living in Singapore, this is where we can easily find Indian food, products and other social events. Other than Indian products and culture, Little India is another unique place in Singapore where anyone can spend hours walking along the streets. One of the major features of Little India is its colourful structures and products. There are even a herd of colourful elephant sculptures at Hindoo road that make Little India a fascinating place to visit.

While the local Indian community visit Little India to buy products and to visit the temples, non-Indians and tourists visit Little India to experience the culture and history of Singapore.

Although I visit Little India frequently to buy products and to eat Indian food, this time I spent time capturing some photos to share the colours of Little India. These colours will show you some of the features of rich Indian culture.
