About 200 years ago, Singapore became an important entrepot largely because of the demand for spices from western countries. Many of the early Indian Muslims were spice traders. Hence Nagore Dargah Indian Muslim Heritage Centre decided to display a collection of 80 different spices forming a 36.2m spice line on its wall. About 410 bottles were used for the line. It was officially opened on 26 Oct 2019.
