Malaysia, Apr 28 (ANI): A monument to commemorate South Indian workers who migrated to Malaysia to work in British Colonies has been erected in Jalan Depo, Port Klang.

Jalan Depo has a historical significance since it was the gateway through which Indian workers would first enter Malaysia. Homebound Indian workers would also take the same route back.

At the time of boarding the ships, over five hundred workers would reside in Jalan depot at any one time reports The Star.

The monument has immense sentimental value as it is symbolic of the hard work and cultural assimilation of the South-Indian migrants who were the progenitors of the Malay Indian community.(ANI)
