Title: Little India Heritage Trail – Street Corner Heritage Galleries Edition
Dates: Sat, 7 & 14 May 2022 | 10:00 – 12:00
The distinctive Little India precinct melds the old with the new, hosting trades from the past beside modern businesses, old conserved shophouses next to high rise buildings. In this precinct, you can find flower garland vendors next to restaurants serving both traditional and fusion meals, small traditional businesses along multi-storey departmental stores. These are just some ways in which the precinct retains aspects of its history within today’s modern context. As part of Singapore HeritageFest 2022, join us on this new edition of the Little India Heritage Trail which also features the Street Corner Heritage Galleries featuring various heritage businesses in the precinct. Listen to anecdotal stories of first- and second-generation heritage business owners and trace the evolution journey of this vibrant cultural precinct.
