Chowrasta Road, George Town, Penang (20 May, 2012)



Chowrasta Road, or Jalan Chowrasta, is one of the four roads surrounding the Chowrasta Market, a market which was established by the Indian community in 19th century George Town. The name "chowrasta" itself means "four crossroads - I suppose it refers to the cross roads formed by Chowrasta Road, Kuala Kangsar Road, Tamil Street and Penang Road.
