The History of The Royal Town

Being one of the oldest towns in the country, Klang was established as the first Malay Sultanate state and bestowed with the status of a Royal Town by the Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Salahuddin in 1643.

Strategically located on the banks of Klang River, it was the place used by the local people to access into the interior then. During the nineteenth century, Chinese immigrants were brought to develop the land and Klang became the entry point for those who sought work primarily in the farms and tin mines. On the other hand, immigrants from India chose to work within the vacinity of the port.

Klang was an important administrative centre for the state of Selangor and was indeed the state capital from 1880 to 1977 when Shah Alam was proclaimed as the new state capital.

皇城的历史

巴生,我国最古老的城市之一,雪兰莪苏丹沙拉胡丁于1643年在这里建立了雪州首个马来皇朝,拥有皇城的美誉。

巴生市位于巴生河两岸,是当年人民最先沿河登陆的地点。十九世纪末,大批中国劳工赴南洋发展,巴生当时成了华工进入雪州的据点,早年移民多从事耕种和采锡为生;印度人则多在巴生港口码头充当劳工。

巴生昔日是雪州重要的行政中心,在1880年成为雪州的首府,截至1977年由莎阿南取代成为雪州首府。
