Event Details

Explore the back streets of Little India and Jalan Basar and discover 3 unique Buddhist temples, each with their own distinct architecture and character on this fun and creative walk with Karen Lucas.

  • Individual Feedback on the photos taken during the walk (via online forum)
  • Complimentary Membership to the Karen Lucas Photography Club, an exclusive forum where you can ask questions, find inspiration, get feedback on your photos, and access members-only events and offers.

Little India is one of our favourite neighbourhoods for photography as it’s got such a distinct cultural vibe and the streets are bustling with colour and life so it’s a great area to work on your travel photography skills.

Our tour starts at the Sakya Muni Buddha Gaya Temple and finishes at the Thekchen Choling Temple.

Every time we stop at a scene, Karen will share her recommendations for camera settings, lens choice and creative framing options.  She’ll often demonstrate how to best capture the scene to get you started and then she’ll come around whenever time permits to check on your progress, see if you need help, and give you 1-to-1 feedback on your photos.

We’ll start off photographing along Race Course Road, capturing some of the beautiful shophouse facades as well as visiting 2 interesting Buddhist sites:

  • Sakya Muni Buddha Gaya Temple: a Thai style monastery with an impressive 15m high seated Buddha.  Bring your widest angle lens to be able to capture all of it!
  • Leong San Temple:  A small, but richly-decorated Taoist temple with very traditional Chinese style roof and decorations.  The main structure resembles a Chinese palace.

Then we’ll take a walk on Beatty Road, past Jalan Besar to the quiet, tucked-away Thekchen Choling Temple, a tiny Tibetan-style temple named after the monastery of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.  It houses one of the biggest collections of mantra wheels in Singapore and you’ll usually see lots of prayer flags and large incense coils outside.

“A very big thank you to Karen for her constant constructive feedback and patience. I always learn so much on these walks!”

Sharlene G.

“I’ve attended several of Karen’s photography workshops and walks and loved every minute. Her passion for her subject and enthusiasm for teaching is totally inspiring. Her sense of humour, creativity and joie de vivre permeate the lessons and field trips and her clear explanations of the technical bits enable even the most technophobic to get creative. Highly Recommended!”
