Chander Road is one of the vibrant places situated at Central Area. People who are living in Singapore know the importance of Chander road, as it is home to one of the most ethnic community of Singapore i.e. Indians.
Chander Road is an area, which has been to thousands of Indians since more than seven years. At the turn of 19th century, many Indians from the state of Tamil Nadu migrated to Singapore for work. As India was also under British control, it was easy for them to travel to Singapore and work here. After gaining independence from Great Britain, Indians living in Singapore didn’t leave Singapore and established their own colony i.e. Chander road. Now this place has its own history to tell and you can feel the ambiance and culture of Indian community in full throttle.
