Pandamaran (Chinese: 班达马兰) is a town and a state constituency in the Klang district in the state of Selangor, Malaysia. It is adjacent to Port Klang and close to Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital as well as Bandar Bukit Tinggi. Pandamaran is essentially a Chinese New Village area, but it is served by excellent road connections and is one of the major industrial zones in the royal town of Klang.

History[edit]

The Pandamaran New Village (Kampung Baru Pandamaran) was built in 1950 after the Malayan Emergency. The British colonial government was aiming to destroy the communist influence and thus gathered all of the Chinese residents here, where many of them came from Kuala Langat and Kuala Selangor constituencies.

Today, there's a 3-star hotel, sports complex, hockey stadium, clinics, children playgrounds, public swimming pool and a police station in Pandamaran. It falls under the jurisdiction of the Klang Municipal Council (MPK).[1]

Politics[edit]

Pandamaran is represented in the Parliament by the Member of Parliament for Klang, Mr. Charles Santiago. In the State Assembly of Selangor, the township is represented by Mr. Eric Tan Pok Shyong , the state assemblyman for Pandamaran. The Local councillor MPK is Mr. Lee Fu Haw.
