Located in the state capital of Selangor and on the west coast of peninsular Malaysia before Shah Alam, the Little India which enclave in Jalan Tengku Kelana, Klang is the biggest Indian street in Malaysia. Intense competitions among shop owners translated into cheaper price for consumers, and people are literally spoilt for choice in the midst of rows of shops on the left and right of the road and stalls spilling into the sidewalks and back lanes sell numerous items for instance Indian traditional costumes, colorful accessories such as bangles and necklaces, textiles, stainless steel pots, Indian delicacies, gold and flowers.
The street is transformed into a colorful sight of lights and sound befitting the festival of light during Deepavali. Most shop owners polled their resources together to decorate the street and the walkways of their shops. The street will be decorated weeks before the festival. The atmosphere is electrifying and traffic will be clogged up as thousands of people made their way from as far as Singapore to make their purchase. Some shop owners will also invite shoppers up to their shop to sample delicacies and to celebrate the festival together. It is easy to be caught up in the throngs of people walking in the narrow walkways, but a little awareness and precaution should be practiced for your own safety. Police manned the street during festive season to avoid unwanted incidence and to control traffic flow. Moreover the Klang main police headquarters is just a stone throw away from the street and generally is free from muggers.
