Ipoh’s Little India

At the hour that I visited, the roads entering Little India were not blocked yet so it was extremely congested with cars and motorcycles, and even dangerous to be on foot, though from evening onwards probably around 5pm or so, the roads leading to Little India will be blocked and no vehicle is allowed to enter. This is only so for these few days because of Deepavali.

wonder what these are

Indian bling

I went to Little India with an open mind to take in the sights and sounds of Deepavali without the intention to shop but I was quite attracted to the wide selection of blings and I even almost had my hands drawn with henna art. It’s only MYR5 per hand!


Happy Deepavali

After today, Little India will be back to normal, though The Chennai Potty’s will still be blasting Tamil music into the night. With this, I would like to wish all Hindu friends, Happy Deepavali!

  1. love this post. to be honest, i didn’t know ipoh has one and i called myself an ipoh guy. . . keep up the good work. . .

  2. hi andy and emily,

    ipoh’s little india is nothing compare to kl’s little india.

    kl has 2 little indias.

    inter alia jalan masjid india and brickfields.

    if you are into shopping and counting human traffic then go to the jalan masjik india one.
    – if you are using ktm, from kl sentral shoot up to pasar seni then stop at lrt masjid india.
    – hop into escalator and masjid india is there.
    – it is just like a pasar malam only, coupled with a lot of bank staff (ocbc) joining in the crowd.

    if you are into sight see-ing, then go to the brickfields one.
    it has just been re furbished.
    time time to go is at night cos there is a elephant fountain
    that can change colour.

    very very very beautiful

    a feast for the eyes………..

    from ktm kl sentral, shoot up to bangsar lrt, then wait
    for bus no 88.

    get off the bus at brickfields.

    that’s for all the sharing.

  3. Ah, thanks for the info! I want to visit the Brickfields one because it’s near KL Sentral. I thought I had to walk there!

    I’ve seen the elephant but it’s during the day. I didn’t know it can change colours. Thanks for the tip!

  4. if you visit today,
    the arch is like somewhat 80% complete.
    it is very very very elaborate.

    yes, the elephant has color at nite due to colors spot lights
    and it changes color every 30seconds.

    it would be good if they have music.
