Once Upon a Time in Little India tells the story of Singapore’s Little India through historical and contemporary lenses, and draws parallels with diasporic settlements across the globe. Overseas Indian communities often reproduce practices, values, language, dress, food, religion etc as manifestations of their root heritage and cultures. This phenomenon is often accompanied by the creation of hubs of activity akin to the idea of a “Little India”.

Discover the history and evolution of Singapore’s cosmopolitan Little India through historical and contemporary lenses at the Indian Heritage Centre’s Once Upon a Time in Little India exhibition. This exhibition presents an eclectic mix of historical artefacts from the centre’s collection alongside loans from the Indian community. In addition, it features exciting site specific works by artistes such as K. Rajagopal, Kumari Nahappan and Navin Rawanchaikul as expressed through the media of film and contemporary art installations.

Indian Heritage Centre opening hours:
