Central Market (Pasar Seni) .........




Original Central Market - later demolished to make way for today's Central Market ..........






Central Market in 1937 - not long after being opened .........






Central Market as it is now ......



Central Market was the largest wet market in Kuala Lumpur. It was a grimy, slippery, noisy and smelly place strewn with chicken feathers, fish scales, rotting vegetables and fruits underfoot. Built in 1936 to replace the wholesale market located in Medan Pasar, then one of the main shopping centres. The building has won awards for its architectural design. It was shut down and renovated in 1985 & re-opened in 1986 as an arts and culture market (Pasar Seni), a lively setting for craftsmen and artists .....

some British officials who had contributed to KL development should be credited. Swettenham, AC Norman+AB Hubback (architects) are all should be put in road names. takkanlah sebab penjajah dah sampai nak padamkan jasa jasa mereka?

nak tanya lah jugak, apa jasa Hang Tuah, Hang Jebat pada KL sampai nak letak nama mereka pada jalan raya di KL?
