Like the rest of South Africa, Durban is quite diverse in culture, although it is the home ground of a distinct lot of Indians. This is the heritage of the slave trade because of thousands of slaves being imported to Kwazulu Natal to work in the sugar plantations. These Indian slaves added their cultural flavor to the region by bringing in a lot of strong curry. This strong curry in combination with Durbanís sunny whether is why it got referred to as a hot city.
