Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s Capital and largest city, fondly known as KL, is the excellent showcase of a concerted effort by the Malaysians in building a capital city that truly reflects its people’s ambition and resourcefulness. From the modest beginning of a small town for tin mining, the city has developed into a huge metropolis today. Naturally resurrected from the confluence of the rivers Klang and Gombak, the city is also a cultural confluence of Ethnic Malays, Chinese prospectors, Indian migrants, and British colonials, who shaped it as a truly cosmopolitan city
