Little India

Area in Jeddah

There is a distinct air of the subcontinent in this square mile just off the King Fahd Rd. Clothes shops sell saris, grocers stock fresh curry leaves and hawkers refer to everyone as vhai (Hindi for 'brother'). You'll get the best curries and the sweetest karak chai (sweetened tea boiled with spices) here as you soak up a taste of Jeddah's South Asian culture.
