In Singapore, Little India is one of the places to spot murals, artwork and sculptures. I’ve spotted many murals and it isn’t easy to show all those murals in one post. Therefore, Instead of sharing all photos as part of Little India murals, I thought of sharing those in a few blog posts. And today I start the Little India mural series by showing the murals at Tekka Centre.
Tekka Centre is a wet market and food centre in Little India where people visit there to buy fresh produces. Other than a wet market, there are many food stalls to enjoy Singapore food and experience hawker culture. The upper floor includes clothing shops. All these make Tekka Centre one of the must visit places of Little India.
The main entrance to Tekka Centre is colourful with below murals.
Most days I couldn’t capture a better photo as the entrance was crowded.
The below mural shows a food truck or street food scene that also connects to the history of Singapore Hawker food culture. Every time I visited the Tekka Centre, this mural was partly obstructed by people or some other objects. But, finally, I could get a good photo of it without any objects. 🙂
Below is another artwork I found inside the Tekka Centre. It is not a painted wall mural. But, it is a sculpture that was made using old photos.
Murals at Exterior walls of Tekka Centre, Little India
Other than the murals inside the Tekka Centre, there are few murals outside the building. I found these as interesting as most people will not actually notice the beauty when they pass by.
If you are in a mural hunt in Little India, then don’t miss these murals that are found on the exterior walls that face Buffalo Road.
I hope you enjoyed the murals of Tekka Centre, which is one of the famous attractions of Little India, Singapore. Tekka Centre is not only for food and shopping, it is also a great place to spot the arts and culture of Singapore.
Location: Tekka Centre, 665, Buffalo Road, Singapore 210665

enjoyed these very much! There are places in Honolulu that are very much like this.
Such places are great to enjoy food while experiencing the local culture…
…Amila, you found some colorful murals. Nice splashes of color.
So true, the colour combination is amazing. Every time I visit there I enjoy looking at these murals. 🙂
They are all wonderful!!! It must be a joy to walk there – I´d spend hours on these, I guess…
I certainly enjoyed it. Thanks!!
Beautiful murals Amila, my favourite is the food cart. So glad you managed to capture it without people in front of it.
Thanks for participating in Monday Murals.
I really like the top mural, street food is so unique
if i come to Singapore one day i want to see these murals with my own eyes. I love murals and am always happy when I see such beautiful specimens – my favorite today is the mural from the street food scene. This scene reminds me of the “real India” we experienced years ago. Maybe you are also interested in the “mosaic mural” that I am showing on my blog today?
Thank you for your kind words in my previous blog post!
All the best
and have a wonderful time!
Amila, Thank you for your weekend coffee share and murals. The food truck mural reminded me of my time eating out in Singapore and enjoying delicious food. It’s great that you finally got a picture of it without obstruction.
I love Singapore and would love to go back to see some or all of these. I miss the sunshine there, which makes the bright colors work.
