There is a mosque named Masjid Jamek in that general area which
was built many years ago. The surrounding area seems to be very busy most times, as there are numerous shops in that vicinity, and also the main road very nearby. Lots to choose for textiles, trinkets, costume jewellery, and even gold products mainly imported from India. Several money changers too that give competitive rates. Need to bargain though for purchases from the smaller outlets. Usually lots of people around.
