Selangor ~ Places to Go



Jugra ~ Historical Buildings
Once the seat of ancient kings, the placid town of Jugra has several fascinating historic buildings. The Sultan Allaudin Mosque was erected in 1932, its classical Moorish architecture giving it a timeless, mystical look. The intriguing Istana Baddar or Town Palace features exquisite woodcarvings reminiscent of the previous century. The Royal Mausoleum, the Jugra Lighthouse and the ruins of the legend-shrouded old Palace are also well worth a visit.



Batu Caves
Only 13 kilometres from Kuala Lumpur's central business district and just outside the city limits, these famous caverns are easily accessible. The main Temple Cave has a ceiling looming over 100metres overhead, and features ornate Hindu shrines. To reach it one has to climb a steep flight of 272 steps, a feat performed by as many as 100,000 Hindu devotes during the annual Thaipusam festival.




National Zoo
The National Zoo has a fascinating animal collection from all over the world, as well as an impressive aquarium and aviary. Restaurants, picnic facilities and rides are also available. Just 13 kilometres from the city-centre, it is in a scenic and convenient location.



Carey Island
Located just off the mainland, Carey Island is well-known for the Orang Asli community known as the Mah Meri. They have assimilated into modern life, with jobs in the nearby plantations and farms, but they retain their unique culture and way of life. Apart from exhibitions of their traditional dances and music, the Mah Meri are particularly known for their votive sculptures, fashioned from a kind of swamp hardwood
known as "Nyireh Batu".



Gombak Orang Asli Centre
Situated at the 20th km mark on Jalan Gombak after Batu Caves, this settlement nestles amidst secondary forest and features an Orang Asli Museum and Craft Shop. Visitors can have an insightful glimpse into the lifestyle and social culture of Selangor's "original people" that is fast-disappearing with development and modernisation.
