Kulim Town :- The Chettiar Avenue



The Chettiar Avenue lines on both sides of Jalan Raya. When I was young I used to peep into one of the Chettiars 'offices' every time I go for my shopping rounds with my mom. I can see a few Chettis sitting crossed leg in front of their small table perched on platforms.IOU chits ,loans all available at some considerable intrests!! I managed to photograph two remaining 'offices' of the Chettis, the entrance is always decorated with colored tiles.
