Little Indias in Colour!

Just to get you guys into the Deepavali mood, here are Klang’s Little India pictures taken last week. Feel free to post your pictures here as well.

Street views in Jalan Tengku Kelana. Very busy...

KL had 2 Little Indias. One is the area around Masjid India which is more of a fusion but then again the area next to it is purely Indian and not Indian Muslims which Masjid India is

Brickfields is the closest we could get to the actual Little India. The problem is that Jalan Travers is kinda wide and it separates the place into 2!

Not really.....they still keep to their language, textile and food culture. The main difference is perhaps the religion and other cultural aspects esp when it involves Tamil Gods

Frankly, they are not even half as assimiliated into the Malay culture as the Babas & Nyonyas

Thanks for your offer and I'm looking forward to a trip there.
I belive I was never in Klang, although my gf dragged me here and there so I was confused where I finally was.
Anyway, I should be in KL in less than 2 months from now.

People in the Klang Valley have 3 Little Indias to choose from. And if you can’t choose either, it’s good to know that they’re all connected by train.

1. Masjid India- Lebuh Ampang (Masjid Jamek LRT)
2. Brickfields (KL Sentral –LRT, KTM Komuter and Monorail)
3. Klang (Klang Station – KTM Komuter)

The little India in Klang is about 5 minutes walk from Klang Station, so it’s quite convenient if you prefer not do drive la.
