Little India @ Jalan Bendahara

We can say where ever we go we can find Curry and Noodles because Little India and China Town are almost everywhere in the world. This including Melaka. Jalan bendahara and Jalan Temenggong intersection in Bandar Hilir are famous for it’s Indian origin shophouses. We can call it Melaka Little India. It is little compared to little India in Penang, Singapore or Kuala Lumpur. So it suit the name little India.

When talking about Little India, everyone knows there will be their trademark Saree’s, dhoti and colorful women accessories. Foodstuff? A home made curry powder, Indian snacks like achi marukku and vadai. Yes, Banana Leaf rice is available here.

With Deepavali just around the corner, Little India at Jalan Bendahara once again bustling with activities and traders selling the festive utensils, flowers and more cookies. Enough said, where ever you go, Little India we see here will be the same like other Little India at other part of the world. They work hard to preserve their identity from early days till now.
