Redevelopment plan for Jalan Masjid India in Kuala Lumpur

When you visit Kuala Lumpur, besides Chinatown and other attractions in and around KL, one of the places you don't want to miss is the area around Jalan Masjid India. Jalan Masjid India is one of Kuala Lumpur’s earliest shopping districts famous for traditional Malay products but can get chaotic during festive seasons like Hari Raya and Deepavali.

The area is home to shopping centres and petty traders which make the area unique.

In the 1900s, traders came in small boats from Indonesia and docked at the confluence of Sungai Kelang and Sungai Gombak and set up trade in the area.

A redevelopment plan is in the pipeline to transform the area into a more happening spot in the city along the lines of London’s Oxford street. Details of the proposal include turning the inner roads into covered pedestrian walkways linking the malls and shops in the area.
