Berkeley Garden or Taman Berkeley as it is called in Bahasa Melayu, is an old established township in Klang, Selangor, Malaysia.

Background[edit]

Before it got its name of Berkeley Garden, it was used to be known as "Taman Bukit Raja" in the early-1970s to the 1980s before having a change in its name. Berkeley Garden's township location is just adjacent to another old township, Taman Eng Ann & the newer township, Bandar Baru Klang (BBK) where most of the business areas & retail outlets including the AEON Bukit Raja Shopping Centre (Bandar Baru Klang) are situated.

Food[edit]

Taman Berkeley is famous for its food such as fried porridge,[1] claypot chicken rice,[2] mee hoon kueh[3] and bak kut teh.[4][5]

Transportation[edit]

Taman Berkeley is located near the Federal Highway. The township will be served by the planned BRT Federal Line's Berkeley station once the project starts its operation in 2018.[6][7][8][9][10]
