History[edit]

According to the history, Kuala Lumpur was founded in 1857 at the confluence of the Sungei Lumpur (now Gombak River) and the Klang River, which now houses the Kuala Lumpur Jamek Mosque. Before the arrival of the Chinese people for the tin mining purposes, Kuala Lumpur was originally occupied Javanese, Mandailings, Bugis and Rawa. Raja Abdullah, who is also the representative of the Sultan is the Klang Malay chieftain was opened the tin mines, thus contributing to the development of Kuala Lumpur. Ampang, the earliest areas in the Klang Valley, opened for tin mining. Thus, a road was built to connect Ampang to Kuala Lumpur which formed Jalan Ampang until now.
