Taman Melawati is a self-contained town located north-east of Kuala Lumpur in Hulu Kelang, Selangor Darul Ehsan. It is administered by the Ampang Jaya Municipal Council (MPAJ). The town's postcode is 53100, which falls under the jurisdiction of Kuala Lumpur. With Selangor losing out in having it under its name by a margin, Kuala Lumpur is technically considered its home.

Melawati is very interestingly dubbed the “Hollywood” of Malaysia with all the local celebrity spotting one can do when in the area, as many of Malaysia’s most famous reside in its premises.[1]

The International School of Kuala Lumpur (Elementary Campus) and the Malaysian Institute of Art (MIA) are located in this town. There is a private hospital, Damai Service Hospital, and a clubhouse, KKlub. The National Zoo of Malaysia (Zoo Negara) is nearby. One of the hills in this town, Bukit Tabur, is a popular hiking spot while the main entrance of the Klang Gates Dam is found on a hill in this town.
