India Street Pedestrian Mall, Kuching

Originally known as Kling Street, the Third White Rajah of Sarawak, Sir Charles Vyner Brooke, changed the name to India Street in 1928 in acknowledgement of the mostly Indian merchants who had established businesses here. It was one of the busiest streets in Kuching's Old Bazaar, popular for clothes shopping. In 1992, it was closed to traffic and converted into a pedestrian mall. Today, most of the street's merchants are Chinese, offering a variety of goods and services that attract 3.8 million domestic and foreign visitors annually. (Brian K. Smith photo.)
