SHAH ALAM (شاه عالم) | Selangor | State Capital City

Selangor



Shah Alam (population 356,066) is a city in Malaysia, about 25 km west of the country's capital, Kuala Lumpur. In 1978, it replaced Kuala Lumpur as the capital city of the state of Selangor due to Kuala Lumpur's incorporation into a Federal Territory. Shah Alam was the first planned city in Malaysia after independence in 1957.

Long ago, Shah Alam was known as Sungai Renggam and was known for its rubber and oil palm estates. Later, the same area was identified as Batu Tiga prior to Malaysian independence, and has been a centre of rubber and palm oil trade for centuries. Its current name was chosen by the then state Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah, after his late father Sultan Alam Shah. Many other monuments, buildings and even a street are named after the late Sultan. The city was granted city status on 10 October 2000 with Dato' Haji Abu Sujak Haji Mahmud as the first mayor.

Yes, I just went there few days ago. A well planned city compared to other cities like KL, PJ, Subang Jaya etc. Less congestion. But I didn't see massive development around city center. The city was a bit 'quit' with less congestion streets. The most unique city in Malaysia that comes with a 'city' status.

I think you must use the word "funny" instead of "unique".

Okay then?

Most Shah Alam residents work in the factories in the outskirts/outer suburbs of the city or are students in UiTM campuses which are spread around the city.So u dun expect busy activities in the city centre near SACC and Alam Sentral all the time.

There are traffic jams during the afternoons on the roads from the city centre to Section 18. The area in Section 2 are also very busy most of the day coz that's where the students live.

Eh , biar betol apa yang awak cakap nih ???? Kebanyakan penduduk Shah Alam bekerja di luar Shah Alam-- kat PJ, KL, dll... tapi diorang pilih untuk duduk kat Shah ALam sebab Shah Alam ni bersih, udara nyaman, tak ada kesesakan, harga rumah pun murah, tak ada pencemaran bunyi bla bla.....
