: : Singapore Little India : :
Indian people have played a proud part in Singapore's history from the very beginning. Indeed, when Sir Stamford Raffles first arrived in 1819 he was accompanied by an entourage of some 120 Indian adjuncts and soldiers. These formed the basis of of the first Indian community located around the area near Chulia Street near the area now known as Chinatown. More Indians subsequently migrated to Singapore in search of employment - some came as manual labor but many also arrived to fill key positions in the government civil service.

The area of Little India as it is known today developed as many poorer, unskilled Indian labourers came to Singapore in the mid 1800's as either construction workers building the nearby race course or ranch hands for wealthy cattle ranchers such as Mr. Belilios, a Jewish Indian from Calcutta. Most of these immigrants originated from Calcutta or Madras. Settling in the area near Rochor River it wasn't long before the area became a vibrant commercial centre for the Indian community, spreading out along Serangoon Rd. Over the course of time the area became known as Little India.

Today, Little India is one of the most colourful and interesting neighbourhoods in Singapore. The aroma of Indian spices mixing with the scent from burning incense together with the bright colours, great food, interesting shops and warm smiles all combine to form a lasting impression. FYI, in order to remain objective, hotels are listed in alphabetical order, we don't favor any hotel for any reason.
