With time, more and more houses were built over there with the specific structure that is still characteristic today - with shops downstairs and flats on the upper floors.

 

Though a lot of changed since then but there are still working entrepreneurs on the ground floors of houses in Chinatown. Above the narrow streets the lanterns are hanging and the aroma of oriental spices is spread. You can meet street chefs over there and buy characteristic souvenirs. Looking for the spirit of old times, it is worth visiting the Heritage Center, where reconstructions of the former shops and apartments of the Chinese district have been located.

When visiting Chinatown you can not miss the temples - a five-level Buddha Tooth Relic Temple with a rooftop garden and a museum with the Buddha's tooth and Sri Layan Sithi Vinayagar. It is said that many years ago an Indian soldier came to Singapore and brought with him a statue of a deity, and when he left the city, he asked the locals to look after the sacred effigy. At his request a temple was built, which is patronized by deities, who sometimes fulfills the dream of living in peace and wealth.
