  India Street Pedestrian Mall
by mansionion

The name Jalan India (Indian Street) was coined in reference to the many Indian muslim traders in this vicinity.

Once the major shopping street in Kuching, the stretch of road has now been designated as a pedestrian walkway and more commonly referred to as the Indian Street Pedestrian Mall. Here, there are a variety of shophouses that has not changed much as in the past decades, trading colourful textiles, clothing, crockery and other essentials.

The storekeepers here are friendly and customers are encouraged to browse around the shops. Bargaining is part and parcel of life here, a good place to put one's bargaining skill to test.

AternatIvely, resting on the attractive wooden benches along the street observing life passing by is also fun. Or just proceed to the alley that connects the street with Jalan Gambier, and find your way to the well-hidden mosque (Masjid India) in between.
