History of Serangoon Road
The location truly is an ideal spot, rich with history, culture, and beauty. Serangoon Road is one of the oldest roads in all of Singapore, and leads across the island, connecting the town to the Serangoon harbour.
It passes through what is now dubbed “Little India,” a community that began developing in the early 1800s. The area is a religious, cultural and commercial hub for local and foreign Indians alike. It is still very active and lively on the weekends and during festivals such as Deepavali and Thaipusam.
Due to its age, Serangoon Road also provides a great drive past old architecture. Buildings spanning from the 1840s to the 1960s line the road with highly decorative facades and unique and traditional plasterwork.
The road’s history can be read in the buildings that line it. It is truly an area where future residents of Jui Residences SDB will be able to enjoy a rich history and culture both as expressed in the architecture as well as shops and activities of the area.
