Klang Rooftops

Walking around in Royal Klang Town, you will find many examples of shops which were built as early as in the 1920s. Unfortunately, most of these periodic-style buildings are left neglected or at best, the owners have repainted  the building exteriors in outlandish striking colors such as sunset yellow, lime green or playful lavender. It made me wonder if more effort should be spent preserving Klang’s building heritage which will be lost forever once it has been demolished or left in a state of abandoned decay.  Even the newer buildings lack modernity, essentially leaving Klang Town in a time-warp. The place seems suspended in the glory days of Malaysia’a Independence , and left behind by the 21st Century. The lacklustre surroundings give me the distinct impression that Klang Town has already peaked, and what is more distressful is that there seems to be no room for civil improvements in the forseeable future. Nevertheless, there are two worthwhile things which Klang has to offer visitors. One is the authentic and delicious Indian food which is plentifully available at every shoplot, corner and alleyway. The other is the

Mosque at Jalan Tengku Kelana

numerous Indian traders selling a wide range of Indian wares from sarees to spices.
