This is an Indian "village" within KL, a short walk from KL Sentral Station. The elephant fountain, the archway presented to the Indian community by KL and the various food stalls/restaurants are the highlights.

As it's name says little India is a small area with great history. It took us an hour 30 to walk through, including going into stores. You can get there by train then from there walk down the street from the station.

Who knew? Little India is Little. We made a point to visit Little India in the evening when we're told that the shops are most alive. It was just a block of shops selling fabric, music, and jewelry. That's it! There was hardly any visitors...More
