The Jalan Majid India Market KL predominantly serves the local Indian Muslim community, and you can find rows of stalls selling a wide array of souvenirs, bags, accessories, toys and authentic Indian clothing, food items and costume jewellery there. This vibrant street market is covered by a massive glass awning tinted in shades of blue, providing shade against sunny and rainy days in the city centre.
What to See and Buy at Jalan Masjid India Market
Ideal for travellers looking to experience the local lifestyle, the street houses numerous pre-war shoplots that offer fresh produce, herbs and spices, as well as traditional costumes like Punjabi suits and sarees in vibrant colours and patterns. At the market, you’ll find local vendors selling Malay and Indian street snacks, fruit juices and ready-to-eat dishes such as nasi campur (mixed rice), burgers and mee goreng (fried noodles).
If you’re visiting during the Ramadhan month, Jalan Masjid India and the adjacent Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman become lively food markets where you can enjoy authentic local dishes and street snacks at attractive prices. Operating from 15:00 until sundown, be sure to head there early as most stalls tend to run out of food by 17:00. It being Ramadan, the food is for takeaway only, and intended for eating once the sun sets and the daily fast can be broken.
To get to Jalan Masjid India Market via pubic transport, take the Putra Line LRT train to Masjid Jamek Station and it’s about a five-minute walk away. Aside from the market, you are also within a 15-minute walk of several landmarks in KL, including the Eco Forest Park and the Cathedral of St. John.
