The only one of its kind in the Islamic world, the first thing you’ll notice is the sundial decorating the main entrance, which has 25 rays decorated with Arabic calligraphy denoting the names of 25 chosen prophets.

With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander past traditional barbershops while local residents in brightly coloured saris patronize retailers from decades past. Peruse streets lined with colourful shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge. Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts and take in the stalls selling bright flowers,

Singapore’s Little India offers a colourful, lively taste of the subcontinent and is well worth the visit.
