Little India is an ethnic district in Singapore. It is located east of the Singapore River and north of Kampong Glam. It is commonly known as Tekka in the Indian Singaporean community. Little India is distinct from the Chulia Kampong area, which was originally a division of colonial Singapore where ethnic Indian immigrants would reside under the British policy of ethnic segregation. However, as Chulia Kampong became more crowded and competition for land escalated, many ethnic Indians moved into what is now known as Little India.
