Little India Tips (32)

THE DANCING WOMAN IN LITTLE INDIA

There is a very strange sculpture of a dancing woman when you walk along Jalan Tun Sabanthan and reach the area where the Elephant Fountain is located. I could not really relate this to a beautiful lady dancing, but never mind. It is a metal sculpture made in a cubist, neo-modernist style,

A SELF GUIDED WALK AROUND BRICKFIELDS

I can recommend this self guided walk around Brickfields where Little India is located. I have done two of these walks before and they take you to some places not mentioned in guidebooks. Unfortunately we had to give up before the walk was completed as it was just too hot in the midday sun, and although we were used to the heat it was just so humid and our clothes were soaking.

WHY IS IT CALLED BRICKFIELDS ?

Well the area where Little India stands today used to be a huge clay pit and the locals made bricks there, but today the area has been revamped and is very enjoyable to walk around. It is now very colorful and you will notice the difference as soon as you arrive there with shops selling sarees, Indian sweets, women's jewelry, Indian grocery stores and Indian restaurants

THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IN LITTLE INDIA

In Brickfields there are so many churches but the main Catholic one is Our Lady of Fatima on Jalan Sultan Abdul Samad. Unfortunately it is impossible to get a good photograph of it because of the trees that surround it and nearby buildings. However my wife being a Catholic spent 30 minutes in the church while i explored the surrounding streets.

WHAT A STRANGE WORLD WE LIVE IN

It is very strange to see Malaysians originating from South India worshiping in a Syrian Church with Greek Saints but you can see this when you visit the Orthodox Syrian Church's Cathedral of St. Mary the Theotokos in Jalan Tun Sambanthan . When we visited the main gates of the compound were closed but fortunately the guard let us in to take a quick look. The exterior of the church is simple with brown posts and painted white.

THE LUTHERAN CHURCH IN LITTLE INDIA

The Lutheran church was established in 1924 and stands in a small compound. It is a simple white church with a red roof. When i went to visit the church it was closed so i had to take my photograph from the window

LITTLE INDIA HAS BEEN GIVEN A REVAMP

When you are visiting Little India at Brickfields you will notice that the whole area has been brightened up with new structures that are brightly painted. These include a series of arches by the road, some statues an many other improvements. It was really interesting when we wandered through the area.

A BEAUTIFUL FOUNTAIN IN THE HEART OF LITTLE INDIA

If you are walking along Jalan Tun Sambanthan you will come to a brightly coloured elephant fountain in the center of the road. In 2010 it was inaugurated as part of the project to brighten up Little India. The fountain is supposed to be the tallest in the country and besides the elephants there are swans and lotuses in 7 different colours.

Little India & Masjid India are 2 different places

After reading these reviews and viewing the pictures, I think it needs clearing up: Little India and Masjid India are 2 completely different places.

Little India is in Brickfields, and the main road that goes through it is Jalan Tun Sambanthan https://maps.google.com.my/maps?q=little+india+malaysia&hnear=Brickfields,+Kuala+Lumpur,+Federal+Territory+of+Kuala+Lumpur&gl=my&t=h&z=15

Masjid India is along the road Lorong Tuanku Abdul Rahman https://maps.google.com.my/maps?q=masjid+india&hl=en&ll=3.152139,101.696599&spn=0.010359,0.018797&sll=3.128877,101.685939&sspn=0.00518,0.009398&t=h&hq=masjid+india&z=17

Little India

This is a pretty and interesting place to talk a walk .I thought it would be larger but there were some interesting shops ,all selling traditional Indian food,clothing and jewellery. We saw some curry houses but it was too early for dinner so we passed them up. We spent about a half hour here before catching a cab to Central Market.

Curry & Clothes

Head down to little india for cheap indian food. A few ringits will get you a decent feed to set you up for exploring the markets. Here there are plenty of bargains to haggle for. Go for around a third of the asking price to start with.

Little India

The Little India area is well worth a stroll. It has some lovely old shop houses, market stalls and the Masjid India - India Mosque from which the area takes its name.

We especially enjoyed visiting the Coliseum Hotel at the south end of Jalan TAR. This colonial era hotel was once frequented by Somerset Maughm. It was wondefully atmospheric inside; had an interesting British flavoured menu and although a bit run down was a joy to visit.
