Location[edit]

A bird's eye view of Setiawangsa station.

Setiawangsa station is situated in Kuala Lumpur, north from the commercial core of the city along Jalan Jelatek, which borders the hilly areas of Semarak to the west and a housing estate officially known as AU1 (also known as Taman Keramat Permai) to the east. As such, the station is also located on the border between Kuala Lumpur city limits and Ampang Jaya city limits in Selangor. The station takes its name from Taman Setiawangsa, a large housing estate just northeast up Jalan Jelatek, from which Jalan Jelatek meets at an intersection with Jalan Setiawangsa and Jalan Taman Setiawangsa. The station thus serves the localities of AU1, Semarak and Taman Setiawangsa, as well as enclosed areas.
