Little India, Kuala Lumpur Malaysia

April 14, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
Little India, Brickfields, is one of the pioneer settlements in Kuala Lumpur. During the English colonization, it was required that buildings in Kuala Lumpur be constructed of bricks and tiles. There was when the brick industry took off and it started here, Brickfields. Since then the Indian community have lived and remained here and became citizens of Malaysia. Apart from Indian food and culture, one can also find Buddhist temples, mosque and churches in Brickfields. Walking down the sidewalks makes you feel like you are in India, except there is no cow roaming around the street.

Little India normally is decorated with colorful deco in the weeks leading up to Deepavali in mid October, and Thaipusam
in the beginning of the year (January - February).

One could also do the heritage walk around the Brickfields (http://www.malaysia-traveller.com/brickfields-heritage-walk.html). To reach there, you can either take the Putra LRT and stop at KL Sentral or take the KL monorail and then stop at KL Sentral.
