Shah Alam is a city in Selangor, Malaysia, and the state capital. It is located in the Petaling District and a tiny piece of the neighboring Klang District. Due to Kuala Lumpur’s admission into a Federal Territory in 1974, Shah Alam took over as the state capital of Selangor in 1978. Following Malaysia’s independence from the United Kingdom in 1957, Shah Alam was the country’s first planned metropolis. On October 10, 2000, Shah Alam was awarded city status, with Dato’ Haji Abu Sujak Haji Mahmud as the first mayor. He most recently served as Selangor’s deputy Menteri Besar, or Chief Minister. Abu Sujak stated his intention to transform Shah Alam into a modern city with a distinct character as a Bandaraya Melayu (“Malay City”), highlighting the Malay race’s achievements in many fields. Given the area’s rich history and mature status, many wish to move to Shah Alam. These people have found their lodgings using Edprop.
The Shah Alam Town Board, managed by the Perbadanan Kemajuan Negeri Selangor (PKNS) or Selangor State Development Corporation, was established in 1963 as a result of the Selangor state government’s intention to develop the current land into a township. The Majlis Perbandaran Shah Alam (MPSA), or Shah Alam Municipal Council, was established in compliance with the Local Government Act 1976 when the Sultan of Selangor declared Shah Alam as the state capital at the time.
The state capital is next to the Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM, formerly known as Institut Teknologi MARA or ITM until 1996). The complete university complex is located in Seksyen 1, a portion of the city’s western highlands. There is also an INTEC UiTM (International Education College) branch campus of UiTM in Seksyen 17, where students can prepare for international studies. Non-bumiputra students are admitted to INTEC UiTM, which is the only UiTM campus that does so.
University of Selangor, Management and Science University (MSU), and its affiliate college, MSU College, are among the city’s other higher education institutions. Shah Alam also includes various industrial-related education centres, including Shah Alam Polytechnic, CIAST, and ADTEC. Many primary and secondary schools, such as SK Bukit Rimau and SMK Kota Kemuning, serve Shah Alam. In some circumstances, the number of students enrolled in schools surpasses the number of potential pupils living in the neighborhood.
There are three secondary schools and seven primary schools in Taman Alam Megah, Taman Bunga Negara, and Taman Bukit Saga, which are located in Sections 27 and 28 respectively. In Sections 16 and 17, on the other hand, Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Seksyen 16 is the lone secondary school. Shah Alam now has 37 primary schools, 23 secondary schools, 1 technical school, and 1 vocational school. Within the city, the SMJK Chung Hwa is the only national-type secondary school.

In Section 19, there is another government-run clinic.

Uptown Shah Alam
Section 24 of Uptown Shah Alam is along the LKSA highway. It’s a popular hangout spot for locals, and it’s more than simply a flea market. Occasionally, there are food stalls and events such as concerts and games.
Bon Odori is a yearly festival that takes place during Obon. It is a Japanese Buddhist tradition to honour the spirits of one’s ancestors who have passed away. Every year in Penang and at the Panasonic Sports Complex in Section 21, Shah Alam, Selangor, Bon Odori festivals are held on a smaller scale. The festival, which is primarily intended to introduce residents to a piece of Japanese culture, offers a range of Japanese food and drinks, as well as art and dance. Malaysian celebrations, particularly in the cities, are more geared toward culture than religious origins. The Japan Club of Kuala Lumpur, The Japanese School of Kuala Lumpur, and The Embassy of Japan are hosting this event, which is free to attend.
