Artesia is a city located in Los Angeles County, California, United States. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 16,380.
Artesia is notable for its large Indian-American community and its collection of Indian businesses. Proposals have often been made to designate a portion of the city as "Little India" (along the lines of Little Saigon in nearby Westminster and Garden Grove), but opposition from other ethnicities in the city and from within the Indian community itself has so far stymied such a measure.Web Sites and Links
