Little India

Jalan Tun Sambathan, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

About

Brickfields, designated as the city's newest 'Little India, is contained within a small grid area and is easy to cover on foot. Quaint Brickfields has received a makeover with pretty arches, paved roads, walkways and freshly painted buildings. Thankfully much of its vibrant character remains intact. Brickfields is crammed with historic pre-war shop houses, which sell everything from spice and sundry to sarees, accessories and Indian delicacies. Imagine vendors going about their daily business lugging their wares; and old women busily threading flower garlands on the sidewalks, sharing their space with sacks of spices and herbs that cram the pavements. For some Bollywood fashion decadence and a truly genuine Indian feel, Brickfields is most definitely your pick. Favorite stores are Mumbai and Preet for colorful and sequined sarees, and New Maliga for exotic accessories. You'll find makeshift booths, spilling out onto the sidewalks, selling colorful Indian dresses and fancy jewelry on days leading up to Deepavali (the Hindu festival of lights). Explore beyond the main street - Brickfields is tagged as the 'divine location' because temples and churches, some almost 100 years old, are located close to one another on Jalan Berhala.
