Tracing the history of the Indian and South Asian communities in the Southeast Asian region, it’s worth a visit to the Indian Heritage Centre if only to admire the building — four storeys that blend both traditional Indian and modern architectural elements. The diversity of Indian culture is captured in the use of a translucent shimmering facade to create an impression of the Centre as a “shining jewel” in the day, and the transformation into a “glowing lantern” of the Indian community with the lighting of the colourful facade mural at night. Newly opened in 2015, the Indian Heritage Centre houses five permanent galleries, a museum shop as well as programming and activity spaces.
