Indian Heritage Centre

5 Campbell Ln, , Singapore, 209924

The Basics

The center is divided into five major themes: early interactions between South Asia and Southeast Asia; the origins and movements of Indians from the 19th century onwards; contributions of early Indian pioneers; social and political awakening of Indians; and contributions of Indians to Singapore as a nation. Visitors can join a guided, docent-led tour, or tour the center on their own with the use of an augmented reality–enabled audio guide. Highlights include exquisite gold necklaces used for the ornamentation of deities and a 19th-century Chettinad doorway with 5,000 intricate carvings.

The Indian Heritage Centre can be visited independently or as part of a guided tour of the Little India neighborhood. Combine it with a half-day Singapore sightseeing tour to see other top highlights, such as Gardens by the Bay or Singapore Botanic Gardens.
