Singapore Little India

Well, technically this huge Buddha in the Sakya Muni Buddha Gaya Temple is not in Little India, but a bit north on Race Course Street. Nevertheless, it's very impressive. 25 meters high, and weighs 300 tons.

Smalk Park is very neat and colorful, while the bikes locked to its fence obvously have been there for a while ...

Many of the houses in the area are small and have shops on the first floor, like these houses near Cuff Rd.

The Hindu temples were all very crowded and we ended up not spending a lot of time there. However, we very much enjoyed our visit to the Abdul Gafoor Mosque on picturesque Dunlap Street.

We ended our tour at the colorful house of Tan Teng Niah, and headed back to the apartment to meet the family for lunch.
