Little India Singapore Photo Expedition 2007
Little India is the focal point of
Singapore's Indian community. Its spice-scented streets beckon you to a
cornucopia of ethnic jewellery, jasmine garlands and silk saris. From
the large Tekka Centre and Little India Arcade to the small provision
shops, Little India is packed with interesting things to discover.
During Deepavali (usually between Oct/Nov), the Indian Festival of
Lights, Little India is transformed into a fairyland of gaily decorated,
brightly lit streets bustling with shoppers. Witness also the faith of
devotees during the colourful and ritualistic Thaipusam in Jan/Feb each
Colourful temples co-exist side by
side with churches and mosques, parrot fortune tellers stationed by the
five-foot way and tantalizing scents of spices drifting out from
restaurants. Don’t leave Little India without trying “Teh Tarik”, a hand
pulled cup of tea or roti parata.
