A vastly different world compared to nearby Bangsar, Brickfields (one of the oldest Indian settlements in the country) is the official India of Malaysia. It houses many streets full of Indian shops and restaurants, and sells everything from traditional Indian goods like spices and incense, to local dishes like vadai, thosai (Indian pancakes made with fermented rice flour) and more. It is one of the important tourist points in the city, and is a 10-minute walk from Kuala Lumpur Central Station. It stretches from a Middle Eastern market, and runs all the way from Jalan Travers to Jalan Ton Sampanthan, with a 35-foot high fountain at the intersection, a information booth in Jalan Thambi Abdullah, and a three-story grocery in India.

Maha Vihara Buddhist Temple
The Buddhist Maha Vihara is an attractive Brickfields temple, about 1 km from KL Sentral Station. Away from the main streets to provide them with a calm and calming atmosphere, serving the Sri Lankan community in the area. Locals call it the Buddhist Booker Fields temple, the white tombstone and the little white powder, but inside it is a world surrounded by high ceilings, beautifully decorated installations, and impressive Buddha statues that make the trip here worthwhile. This intense Buddhist temple represents a true and unmissable magician, represents Theravada culture, and was founded by Sinhalese society in 1894. Another one of the biggest selling points is that it has the advantage of not being overcrowded unless it comes during the festival seasons.

Sri Kandaswamy Kovil Hindu Temple
Another notable temple in Brickfields, the Sri Kandaswamy Kovil Hindu Temple is a colorful decorative shrine dedicated to the Hindu god Lord Moruga. The place is a popular tourist attraction dating back to 1902, and is centrally located in Borkfields, and its practices are very traditional. The most impressive feature of this temple is the “entrance portal” which is said to be the doorway between the material and spiritual world: it is decorated with reliefs of hundreds of statues of Hindu deity. Filming inside a place of worship is not permitted, so you get some amazing shots of its exterior facade.
