From Brick Kilns to Little India

Elizabeth Cardosa, Executive Director, Badan Warisan Malaysia

From Brick Kilns to Little India

In this episode of I Love KL, we explore the many facets of Brickfields with a little help from our friend from Badan Warisan Malaysia, Elizabeth Cardosa. The heritage crusader takes us through the evolution of the township, from its industrial roots in brick kilns into the commercial destination that we know today. How does Brickfields negotiate its dual identity, both as a local neighborhood, and a highly marketed tourist destination dubbed KL's 'Little India'? Most importantly, has gentrification found its way into the historic enclave? Elizabeth answers those burning questions.
