Ipoh Little India

Ipoh's Little India (Powered by Google Maps)

Even as the Prime Ministers of Malaysia and India launched the new Little India in Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur on 27th October, 2010, let’s not forget that Ipoh has her very own Little India as well. I visited Ipoh’s Little India yesterday afternoon in conjunction with Deepavali (or Diwali to some), and not surprisingly, even under the hot sun, it was bustling with last minute shoppers. Yesterday was, after all, the eve of Deepavali.

Just like the Little India in Brickfields, this one in Ipoh covers part of two main roads from Jalan Sultan Yussuf (Belfield Street) to Jalan Lahat and partially, Jalan Koo Chong Kong forking out into a Y-shaped area with side entrances from Jalan Silang and Persiaran Bijeh Timah. Just for visual purposes, I enclosed a screenshot of the area on Google Maps, as seen in the first photo.

I took a leisurely walk along the streets to take some photos and also took the opportunity to look at what’s for sale for Deepavali since I hardly come to this side of town. I was quite surprised to see some of the shops look like high-end boutiques so much so that shoppers even had to remove their shoes before stepping in!
