Shah Alam

Petaling Jaya

Shah Alam is the capital city of Selangor, located between Subang Jaya in PJ and Klang. The city is known for its Islamic architecture, stately buildings and unusually high number of traffic roundabouts. When Kuala Lumpur became a Federal Territory in 1974, Shah Alam was declared the new capital city of Selangor in 1978. It was named after Sultan Alam Shah, a former ruler of Selangor during the colonial era.

Shah Alam's most iconic landmark is Masjid Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz, fondly known as the 'Blue Mosque', the largest in Malaysia. Within the city, visitors can explore the Selangor State Museum, Kompleks Taman Seni Islam (Islamic Arts Complex), Raja Tun Uda Library, Wet World Water Park, Laman Seni (street art gallery) and more. Other famous tourist attractions include Taman Botani Negara and i-City.
