Heart Of Klang's Indian Community
Bigger than even those of Penang’s and Kuala Lumpur’s, the Klang Little India is Malaysia’s largest Indian street. The area began in the 19th century where it was a place of business for chettiars (Indian money lenders) and textile exporters.
Klang Little India began with about 5 shops, but has now grown to over 100 shops stretching across the whole length of Jalan Tengku Kelana.
A great variety of sights and sounds greet visitors upon arrival to Little India. Numerous shops and stalls can be seen excitedly peddling their products and wares (particularly jewellery, cloths, silverware and food), while the delicious aroma of Indian spices and the passionate beat of Hindi music fills the air.
