 Selangor Kuala Lumpur Malaysia

Kota Darul Ehsan marks the Sultan of Selangor’s move to yield Kuala Lumpur to the Federal Government.

One of the most distinctive landmarks in Selangor, Kota Darul Ehsan is the biggest arch in Malaysia, and it is the division between the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur and Malaysian state of Selangor. Erected on route 2, of the Federal Highway, you are most likely to drive past this magnificent arch on your way from Kuala Lumpur to Petaling Jaya, or vice versa.

The arch’s Moorish influence (as seen from the domes on the arch) is flanked by cannons on both sides and subtle light effects which bathes the arch in a warm glow at night.
