If you are in the area of Little India, be sure to stop by the Poli @ Clive Street to see some live bulls, cows and goats at the temporary cattle farm, as part of the Pongal celebration.
Cattle Farm At Little India for Pongal
Located in a big white tent, the Little India Cattle Farm offers visitors a chance to see the cattle which have been decorated for the Pongal harvest festival. The cattle have their horns painted and festive garlands around their necks.
This practice is done as a way to thank the cattle for their work during the agricultural season.

The temporary cattle farm at Little India has a mix of adult cattle and baby calves. There are even goats too.
Also on display are a couple of colourful cow sculptures, showing them pulling a cart.
The cattle come from Viknesh Dairy Farm in Kranji.
Viewing the Cows and Bulls at Poli @ Clive Street
The live cattle can be viewed from January 6 to 16 from 9 am to 8 pm. Only 5 people are allowed in the tent at one time.
