Quartiere indiano di Durban

Ingresso gratuito

Durban, un tempo dimora del Mahatma Gandhi, ha una delle più alte popolazioni indiane al di fuori del sub-continente stesso. Il quartiere indiano situato in posizione centrale è il centro di questa comunità, che a sua volta è composta da diversi gruppi, prevalentemente musulmani ma con significative minoranze indù e buddiste. Vivaci celebrazioni durante tutto l'anno scandiscono i giorni sacri e altre feste tradizionali.

La Moschea Jumma è il punto di riferimento più noto della zona, mentre il Victoria Street Market a due piani e le gallerie vicine offrono spezie inebrianti insieme a vestiti, gioielli e altri beni. Naturalmente ci sono ottimi ristoranti per tutti i palati; per un assaggio autentico della Durban indiana, prendi un "bunny chow", una pagnotta scavata riempita di curry caldo fumante.

Wildcard

Visiting the Juma Mosque Spanning multiple blocks of the Indian Quarter, the Juma Mosque is the area’s main attraction and one of the largest mosques in the Southern Hemisphere. You can admire the domes and spires from the outside, or visit on weekdays from 9am–4pm or Saturday from 9am–1pm to explore the interior. On Fridays, you can expect the mosque to be packed with local worshipers—it accommodates up to 6,000 people. To learn more about the mosque, visit on a guided tour.
