Although predominantly occupied by Chinese immigrants, Chinatown saw the harmonious coexistence between the different ethnic groups since the early colonial years. 'A Tale of Two Communities in Chinatown' explores the stories of the early Muslim and Hindu immigrants from South India through our two national monuments- Jamae Mosque and Sri Mariamman Temple. A journey through time awaits you!

This virtual tour is brought to you by the Preservation of Sites and Monuments, of the National Heritage Board.
