Colourful....noisy....lively....you certainly won't be bored in this fascinating area of Kuala Lumpur. Only a few minutes walk from KL Sentral, there's lots to see. It may be called Little India but it is clearly a multi-faith community with a mix of temples and churches. There's a beautiful fountain and some interesting architecture. There's plenty of places to eat from street... More

My husband and I visited here and really wish we hasn't. It was such a waste of time. The men are all very sleazy and even though my husband was holding my hand and walking next to me they still wouldn't stop staring at me. I felt very angry and uncomfortable. Little India should be called little south India as... More

It seems like there are always Chinatowns in big cities but KL has this may I say "Indiatown" like place. Interesting place to go and get a feel for what India may be like. If you want some Indian food or fabric and jewelry here is a good place as well.

You will find everything of India here - Clothes, jewellery shop, Temple, street food, restaurants, Public. You really feel like you are in India. On my visit to Kuala Lumpur every night I go there to have Indian food as there is the only place in Malaysia where you will find options on Indian restaurants.

Spent the day wandering around and shopping. I am not so much a fan of the standard tourist junk, but we did find some nice stores. Cosmic Silk was my favorite. We bought a bunch of fabric and pashminas. Sometimes the pashminas were cheaper than the fabric they were made out of.

I took a walk through Little India during the afternoon. The atmosphere was lively, with shopping and eating on the streets, and Indian pop music blaring from the record shops. This is a great place to take a stroll, get a cheap meal, and window shop for Saris and gold jewelry.

Brickfields is the only place in KL where various religious structures can be found. It is in this locality that one can find a small mosque, Hindu & Buddhist temples & churches. As such, this places becomes buzzing with activity during the various festivals celebrated by each religion. There is never a dull moment in this place. And to top... More

This was a brilliant side of KL. I loved exploring the Indian culture and I truly fell like I was in India from the shops, the street markets to the restaurants it’s just a pure cultural fusion. I recommend to go visit this place at night when it’s all lit up and buzzing make sure you try some authentic Indian... More
