Well as the name suggest its a little India. A home away from home sorts. Since I am from India , i did not find this interesting at all. Though it does feel very different from rest of KL , it does not do justice to its title. You can walk around a bit and taste few "Indian" dishes.

Like in many other countries the Indian community in Malaysia has established its presence & built an area as Little India. It is not only the Indians but most other South Asians communities are seen here as it has a wide range of goods used by them for day to day life. The spices are a special commodity available in...

Day or night, great place to visit and eat. As soon as you walk in you are greeted by friendly faces and the most down to earth people. Everyone here is extremely kind and welcoming. Great selection of nice Indian shopping. Normally if you bargain, you can bring the price down. Nice spicy Indian restaurants and good food, fast service.... More

I have been several times in little India and its still interesting to see the life style, the people and the way of doing. Comparing to India people in Germany, Indonesia, Singapore or any other part of the world, they keep their heritage a life. Its close to the bus station to/from airport.

You know where to go if you're looking for Indian things. Choose carefully and try to bargain! Make sure to compare the price from one stall to another stalls.

it is located in brickfields near the former Brickfields Police Station. this stretch of road has been beautified to make it more indian. You will find alot of shops selling indian clothings, jewelery, and eatries. 1 or 2 budget hotels. the place is always jam and parking is always a problem.

Little India is quite different to the rest of KL. Most of KL is Malay, mixed with Chinese, Indian, Western and other cultural influences, both in food, and things to see, which is one of the great parts about this city. Little India on the other hand, is almost exclusively Indian, so that makes it worth a visit. Yes if... More

We were kinda dissapointed how,a developed country like Malaysia could have a part of it still underdeveloped right in the middle of city. Sure,gives you a feel of India,but not that security.

Plenty of covered over stalls offering similar goods to Petaling Street, mainly aimed at Tourists. Not as atmospheric as Chinatown and not many Indians in evidence although some of the streets do have carpet shops etc.on them.
