Little India

Perhaps, no place outside India is as authentically and colourfully Indian as Little India, the small enclave located along Market Street, Chulia Street, and Queen Street in George TownPenang, Malaysia. This rectangular-shaped enclave was created to accommodate thousands of Indian migrant workers during the early twentieth century, and is one of the city’s most popular attractions today. Here you will find everything, from astrologers, barbers, and fortune-tellers, to aromatic spices, exquisite silk saris, and mouth-watering Indian cuisine. Add colourful festivals and elaborately decorated Hindu temples, and you will discover just why Little India attracts millions of visitors every year.

  • See the amazing sculptures of Hindu Gods and Goddesses above the entrance and across the façade of the 1833 Penang Mahamariamman Temple, or the gold, silver, emerald and diamond-embellished statue of Lord Subramaniam inside.
  • Savour aromatic and delicious South Indian culinary delights, including the popular roti chanai and thosai, or a spicy vegetarian meal served on a banana leaf at the Sri AnandaBhawan restaurant in Penang’s Little India.
  • Shop for ethnic Indian gold jewellery, trinkets, silk and cotton clothing, and even a VCD of the latest Bollywood hits, all available at Market Street, Little India.

Little India, a short walk from the centre of George Town, is accessible via Penang’s Bayan Lepas International Airport in about 45-minutes by taxi, bus or hired car. Express buses ply the route to the city from Kuala Lumpur and other major cities. Long-distance taxis connect the city via the Weld Quay. Trains also run from Kuala Lumpur to the Penang Railway Station which is located near the ferry terminal. The city centre is also reachable by taxi from the ferry terminal, a disembarkation point for many passenger ferry services. Trishaws are another fun option to get to Little India.
