Shah Alam

Shah Alam is a city in Selangor, and the state capital. It is located in the Petaling District and a tiny piece of the neighbouring Klang District. Due to Kuala Lumpur’s admission as a Federal Territory in 1974, Shah Alam took over as the state capital of Selangor in 1978. Following Malaysia’s independence from colonial Rule in 1957, Shah Alam was the country’s first planned metropolis. Shah Alam, or previously known as Sungai Renggam, was formerly famed for its rubber and oil palm plantations.

Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah, the state Sultan of Selangor at the time, adopted the present name after his father, Sultan Alam Shah. Many more landmarks, structures, and even a street bear the Sultan’s name. Shah Alam was established in 1963 with the goal of becoming Selangor’s new administrative capital, replacing Kuala Lumpur, which became a Federal Territory on February 1, 1974.
