About Travel to Kuala Lumpur
Kuala Lumpur is a large modern city with lots of shopping centres, a fast efficient public transport system, a large number of public parks and a relatively small number of significant historical buidings. Kuala Lumpur was established in 1857, almost exactly 100 years before Malaysia became an indpendent country. During that first 100 years of the city’s development the influence of the British colonial government, and of other immigrant groups particuarly Chinese and Indian, is still noticeable today. Many of the oldest buildings in Kuala Lumpur, such as those in Merdeka Square, were built by the British colonial authorities, or alternatively by Chinese or Indian settlers as was the case with the Sri Mahamariamman Temple and the Guan Di Temple.
Following indpendence in 1957 the development of Kuala Lumpur took a new path. The newly formed national government embarked on a process of modernising the country’s economy away from being based in agriculture toward more high value industries. The Malayian government achieved this to a greater or lesser extent and, with the assistance of funds gnerated by the state petroleum company (Petronas), invested large amounts of money into Kuala Lumpur’s infrastructure creating a better and cleaner business environment, raising property prices, and making the city more pleasant for visitors. The generous allowance of land for public parks in Kuala Lumpur has a been key feature of this national economic plan, which favoured Kuala Lumpur over other regional population centres such as Johor Bahru.
The other major change to Kuala Lumpur after independence was cultural. The influence of Malay culture has increased in Kuala Lumpur, which in many senses began as a city of immigrants. The most visible sign of this cultural shift is the Masjid Negara Malaysia. The Masjid Negara Malaysia, or National Mosque, was completed in 1965 supplanting the British built Jamek Mosque as the most important mosque in the city. The contrast between the Masjid Negara Malaysia and the Jamek Mosque is stark. The Jamek Mosque features domes and turrets reminiscent of the Indo-Saracenic architectural style used by the British across their empire. The Masjid Negara Malaysia, however, features a more brutal modernist architectural design with features alluding to aspects of traditional life in the Malay peninsula. This new mosque is considered by many to be symbolic of the change in direction of the Malay government following independence which has been one of modernising the country whilst trying to maintain its traditional values. The tension between these objectives is one of the unique charateristics of Kuala Lumpur and a key aspect of the city’s identity.
