Kampung Malabar is actually a street that links up Penang Road and Cintra Street in George Town. Its name was derived from a Malabari village during the 19th century. The Malabaris were originally from Kerala, India and were artisan construction workers. The area was later dominated by the Chinese and Japanese during the 1900s.
