Little India|Pulau Pinang|Malaysia

Interesting Places In Malaysia

Little India is located along Market Street, King Street and Queen Street,right in the center of George Town. Little India is a great place to visit if you are seeking an interesting shopping experience. All along these streets, you will find shops selling everything Indian – from gorgeous silk, cotton and brocade saree materials to stainless steel tiffin carriers. And the generous number of money changers sprinkled in this area, particularly along Lebuh Chulia, is certainly a convenience.

As you make your way from one interesting shop to the next curio, you'll be entertained by a number of shops blasting Hindi and Tamil music nearly at full blast. Another interesting attraction within Little India is the Sri Mariamman Temple, located on the corner of Lebuh Queen and Lebuh Chulia.

The streets are also synonymous with money lenders and foreign currency money changers. Chettiars are money lenders and it is an old profession associated with the Indian people. The five footway also used to have fortune tellers offering their services.
