According to your individual interests, you can either start your walk from the Little India MRT station or from Farrer park MRT station

On the map below, Farrer Park MRT station (A) has been given as a starting point which is just a stone's throw away from two Buddhist (E,C) and two Hindu temples(B,D). Also, City Square Mall and Mustafa Center can be found near this station.

Tekka Market, Indian Heritage Centre (@Cambell Lane) and the Sri Veerama Kaliamman Tempe is nearer to the Little India MRT station.
