The Nagore Dargah Indian Muslim Heritage Centre is located at 140 Telok Ayer Street, in the historic Chinatown area. Built between 1828 and 1830 and originally known as the Shahul Hamid Durgha, the beautiful memorial is dedicated to Shahul Hamid, Saint from India who propagated Islam through his noble work and curing the sick. The memorial was designated a national monument in 1974 and re-opened in May 2011 as the Nagore Dargah Heritage Centre showcasing Indian Muslim culture, diaspora and heritage. The Nagore Dargah Indian Muslim Heritage Centre provides a intriguing and educational experience for all, while depicting the rich culture of the Indian Muslims in the region.

  • An interesting mini museum on Singaporean Indian culture. Well presented but limited. The building itself is great architecture and design both inside and outside
  • Beautiful museum that gives us an insight into the lives of Indians and a history lesson about famous Indians.
  • Traditional Indian cultural museum, its architecture design beautiful, all the old technology used in India and the Chettinadu doors And other tools and techniques used old generation, very satisfied, great to visit this place .
  • The 15 minute movie they play has very limited content. Other than that this place is good.
  • Great lesson in history, free for locals like most museums here.

Where to stay in Singapore

For leading chain hotels, head to the area around Orchard Road, considered the tourist center of Singapore due to its varied selection of rooms, good travel links, and tourist-focused businesses. At the eastern end of the road, you'll find more luxurious and expensive options, with hotels located in impressive colonial-era architecture. North and south of this main artery, backpacker hostels and budget hotels provide affordable rooms with basic facilities.
