The name says it all

This is a market place where most of the Indian origins hang around. There are many shops and eateries around which sell Indian goods and food.

Getting out from modern Sentral you get info one of the cleanest and nicest piece of India (better one only in Singapore) . Don't worry eating in local restaurants.

In Malaysia if you want to have Indian food. This is the place. You will more South Indian options. When you roam around here. You will find the place just like home in India. This was good attraction for 2nd honey moon vacation in Malaysia. Food away from home.

We enjoyed our walk through Little India more than Chinatown. Sure it's a bit trashy but not having seen anything similar before, for us it still an interesting aspect of KL.

If you, like me, are interested in handicrafts, this is the place - you can get everything you need if you like to sew, and it is really cheap...... warning! Make room in your suitcase before you even leave home............... :-)
