The Star Hill The Most Happening Place In Town

Jalan Masjid India (or Indian Mosque Street in English) is one of the oldest streets in the city, named after the Masjid India mosque beside the street. The mosque is about 140 years old, built in 1870 for the Indian Muslim population that originally lived there. Jalan Masjid India has a reputation of being a shopping haven since a century ago and is still going strong today. The official site at jalanmasjidindia.com describes it as

a shopping paradise for locals and foreigners alike and it is well known for both wholesale and retail shopping and famous among locals as well as foreigners for shopping, food and discovering the real Malaysia.

 

Despite being busy during normal times, the street really comes to life during the Ramadhan (Islamic month of fasting) season, where it will play host to an exciting and happening Ramadan Bazaar every year.

 

An innumerable number of traders (mainly selling food to cater to the fasting Muslims) will set up their stalls on the street. Together, they turn Jalan Masjid India into one of the biggest and most colourful Ramadan Bazaar in

Malaysia-stretching all the way from the Masjid India Mosque at one end of the street to the Semua House at the other end.

 

Other than food, visitors can easily find Hari Raya-related goods such as textiles, clothes, décor and confectionaries in the bazaar, aimed at those celebrating Hari Raya Aidilfitri which happens at the end of the Ramadhan fasting period.
