Kota Darul Ehsan is a row of arches symbolizing the border on Malaysian Federal Highway between the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur and Malaysian state of Selangor. Erected on Federal Route , it is the biggest arch in Malaysia.
As a commemoration of the cession of Kuala Lumpur to the federal government to form a Federal Territory by Selangor, the building of the arch was commissioned by the late Sultan of Selangor, Almarhum Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah on 1 February 1974. This arch symbolises the sacrifice of the Selangor state to the federal government. This arch was officially opened in 1981.
Kota Darul Ehsan also features two cannons on each face of the arch.
