Indian District Travel Guide

Indian District

The biggest Indian population outside of India resides in Durban, and the influence on the city is much in evidence, from the architecture to the cuisine. Under apartheid's Group Areas Act that designated where various race groups could live and own businesses, Indian traders set up shop on Dr Yusuf Dadoo Street (Grey Street). Here you can eat vegetarian curry, bargain for goods, buy fabrics, or just browse shops whose ownership spans generations, and soak up the Eastern vibe. Watch your belongings closely. In addition, this part of town can be quite grubby, and in the midday summer heat it can get unpleasantly humid.
