Maluri (Chinese: 马鲁里 or sometimes called Taman Maluri by local) is a suburb which is on the border of the constituencies of Titiwangsa[1] and Cheras in eastern Kuala Lumpur.

It is located along Jalan Cheras Jkr-ft1.svg (English: Cheras Road) and can be accessed through the Maluri station served by the LRT Ampang Line and the MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line. It is one of housing estates closest to Kuala Lumpur's Golden Triangle.

Maluri is located close to the boundary between Cheras and Kuala Lumpur's central business district. It is adjacent to Kampung Pandan, Pandan Jaya and Jalan Cochrane, and across the Kerayong River is the development of Shamelin Perkasa.

Newer malls sprung up in the area in recent years, most notably Sunway Velocity Mall. IKEA's second store in Malaysia and MyTown opened along Jalan Cochrane, just adjacent to Maluri.[2]

Car[edit]

Maluri is located along Jalan Cheras, next to its interchange with BESRAYA E9. The area can also accessed via Jalan Cochrane, Jalan Perkasa and the MRR2 via Pandan Jaya.
