It is a small suburb bounded by the National Sports Complex on the east, the Shah Alam Expressway on the north, city boundaries to the west, and the Puchong–Sungai Besi Highway as well as city boundaries to the south. It was known as the Bukit Jalil Estate until 1992, when it was developed into the National Sports Complex for the 1998 Commonwealth Games. It was used as a filming location for the 1999 movie Entrapment, although the sign was changed to that of Pudu.[1]
