The following is a list of capitals in Malaysia. It mainly describes the capitals of the states, districts, as well as the national capitals of Malaysia.

National capital[edit]

The national capital of Malaysia is Kuala Lumpur. It remains as the primary cultural, business and financial centre in Malaysia. The Parliament of Malaysia and the official residence of the King is also located in Kuala Lumpur. In 2001, the seat of government was moved from Kuala Lumpur to the planned city of Putrajaya which from then on served as the federal administrative centre or sometimes referred to as the administrative capital. Both these cities together with Labuan have special status as Federal Territories of Malaysia.

State capitals[edit]

All the states in Malaysia except for Malacca, Penang, Sabah, and Sarawak, are constitutional monarchies. The four non-monarchical states are headed by a Yang di-Pertua Negeri (Governors). Thus, those states with constitutional monarchies have royal capitals or seats where the palace or official residence of the monarch is situated. These capitals are sometimes different from the state's administrative capitals. State administration is carried out by each respective state government that is formed after winning the elections.
