Melaka - Day 4

Our final day in town and after croissants and muffins at the Ola Cafe 

we explored the aptly named Harmony Street. So called because here you can find places of worship for Hindus, Buddhists, Christians amongst others. There are three striking temples and a beautiful Mosque. We visited all of them and the experience was enhanced as it was the eve of CNY and people were busy making offerings and visiting the shrines to offer up personal prayers of devotion. We loved Harmony Street and for us, it pretty much sums up Melaka and, for that matter, Malaysia and her people.

Another afternoon nap in the comfort of our air conditioned room before we went out to Little India in search of an authentic Indian meal. We found it at the local restaurant known as "Saravana". The place was full of local Indians and we were the only white faces. Everyone was super friendly and although the setting is more canteen casual than chic the South Indian food was delicious and incredibly cheap!
We enjoyed a banana leaf curry with several condiments, vegetarian "chicken", poppadoms, more condiments, plain Dosai and cool creamy mango lassi all for the princely sum of £2.10!!

Perfect for our last meal in Melaka.
