History

It was first developed by the British as an answer to the problem of overpopulation in Kuala Lumpur in 1952 and has since witnessed a dramatic growth in terms of population size and geographical importance. The development of Petaling Jaya centered around the area currently known as “Old Town” today. The first road built in Petaling Jaya was simply called "Jalan 1" or Road 1, and is now called Jalan Templer (named after the then British High Commissioner to Malaya, Lieutenant-General Sir Gerald Templer). 1952 (MCMLII) was a Leap year starting on Tuesday (link will take you to calendar). ... Field Marshal Sir Gerald Templer, KG (1898 - 1979) was a British military commander. ...


Until the end of 1954, the town was administered by the Kuala Lumpur District Officer and the Petaling Jaya Town Authority. Administratively and historically, it was considered part of Kuala Lumpur. However, Petaling Jaya ceased to be part of Kuala Lumpur when the latter became a Federal Territory on February 1, 1972. It then became a township in its own right within the state of Selangor. 1954 (MCMLIV) was a common year starting on Friday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

On 1 January 1977, the Petaling Jaya Town Authority was upgraded to become Petaling Jaya Municipal Council or Majlis Perbandaran Petaling Jaya (MPPJ). Petaling Jaya progressed rapidly due to the massive rural-urban migration. As more people from rural areas immigrated, Sungai Way and Subang districts along with new areas such as Subang Jaya, Seksyen 52 (New Town or colloquially known as State; the name of the first, former cinema in the area) developed in areas under the jurisdiction of the municipality. Eventually, in a boundary realignment exercise in early 1997, parts of Petaling Jaya such as Subang Jaya, Sunway, Puchong and USJ were placed under the jurisdiction of the newly formed Subang Jaya Municipal Council or MPSJ.

On 20 June 2006, Petaling Jaya was granted its city status and Dato' Ahmad Termizi Puteh, a former Yang di-Pertua MPPJ, automatically became the first mayor (Datuk Bandar) of Petaling Jaya. Petaling Jaya's local authority changed its name to Majlis Bandaraya Petaling Jaya (MBPJ) or Petaling Jaya City Council following the granting of city status. On 15 August, Dato' Ahmad Termizi Puteh retired from the post of mayor [1] and he was later replaced by Tuan Hj. Mohamad Roslan Sikaman.

Demographics

As of 2000, Petaling Jaya claimed 355,530 inhabitants within the area of 51.4 sq.km. The actual population by 2003 would have been a little over 450,000 inhabitants without taking into account the total population of the Kuala Lumpur-Petaling Jaya conurbation which would have resulted in a total population of 1.5 million.Its population is comprised of 55% Chinese, 30% Malays, 13% Indians, whereas the remainder consists of other races.

Landmarks

A prominent landmark is the Kota Darul Ehsan arch which symbolically marks the boundary between Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya. This arch straddled the Federal Highway (Lebuhraya Persekutuan) which was originally the only highway link between Petaling Jaya and Kuala Lumpur. However, many links now exist as alternatives to the congested Federal Highway.

Close to the Kelana Jaya Line's Taman Jaya Station is the Thai Chetawan Temple. This ornate building is probably the only authentic-design Thai temple in the Klang Valley and is very popular amongst the Buddhist community. A short drive ahead is PJ State, the nickname for the Central Business District of Petaling Jaya with the landmark Menara MBPJ as a focal point. PJ State is more formally referred to as PJ New Town.


Commerce

Residents of Petaling Jaya are availed a wide selection of traditional shops as well as a choice of several medium to large shopping complexes. The shops are situated at various strategic locations such as SS2, Damansara Utama, Kelana Jaya, Damansara Jaya, Taman Megah, SS3, Section 14, SEA Park, PJ New Town and PJ Old Town. Of these, the SS2 commercial area is often regarded as that being the more prosperous. During PJ's early days, local shopping mostly meant patronizing the shops at either PJ Old Town, New Town or Section 14. PJ New Town is also commonly referred to as PJ State or simply State.


The first semblance of a shopping centre in Petaling Jaya was perhaps the Thrifty Supermarket that used to operate along Jalan Barat. However, the very first supermarket to operate in Petaling jaya is perhaps either Ben's Mini Market or Pok Brothers Mini Market, both of which operated in PJ New Town. A while later, during the mid-seventies, Jaya Supermarket commenced operations at Section 14. Not too long afterwards, Fitzpatrick's Supermarket commenced operations at the Asia Jaya Complex.


The Jaya Shopping Centre, which houses the Jaya Supermarket can perhaps be regarded as Petaling Jaya's first proper shopping complex and the Asia Jaya Complex being likely the second. Till today, the Jaya Shopping Centre remain to be a popular destination amongst PJ residents. The Fitzpatrick Supermarket did not survive the 1980s recession. The Asia Jaya Complex itself was transformed to become the Armada Hotel during the mid-1990s. Thrifty Supermarket did not survive the 1990s economic recession. Today Court's Mammoth is operating at this Jalan Barat location. In SEA Park, the Emporium Supermarket operated during the 1970s in the premises located above the SEA Park wet market. The Emporium too did not survive the 1980s economic downturn. By the 1980s, the Daya and Fajar Supermarkets had commenced operations at SS2 and Damansara Utama respectively. Daya did not survive the 1997 economic crisis whereas Fajar relocated to Banting in 2006. Fajar's former Damansara Utama location was extensively renovated and by early 2007 was occupied by upmarket tenants such as HSBC and Starbucks. At SS2, the Savemart Supermarket has been a popular choice for groceries since the 1980s.


The 1980s saw the establishment of the Atria in Damansara Jaya and Subang Parade in Subang Jaya. The Atria provided the opportunity for residents to patronise either the Japanese Kimisawa or the French Printemps department stores. Both of them did not survive the 1980s economic recession. By the mid-1990s, 1-Utama had commenced operations at Bandar Utama. Jaya Jusco, a Japanese Department Store which had operated since the late 80s at Taman Tun Dr Ismail later relocated as one of the anchor tenants of 1-Utama.


Tesco Supermarket commenced operations at Mutiara Damansara in 2003. This was quickly followed by the Ikano Power Centre in 2004 and the Curve in 2005. The Ikano Power Centre houses South East Asia's largest IKEA Swedish furniture store. IKEA had previously operated at the nearby 1-Utama. At about the same time, the 1-Utama new wing had commenced operations. By 2006, these establishments had synergised to make Bandar Utama and adjacent Mutiara Damansara to become very popular shopping destinations in the Klang Valley.


Transport

Transportation facilities and infrastructure are well developed in Petaling Jaya. Bus services since PJ's early days until the early 1990s were provided by Sri Jaya. Some SEA Park residents may recall the old Sri Jaya Leyland Albion buses on the No.241 service struggling to climb the relatively steep Jalan 21/1. The mid-eighties saw the introduction of mini-buses. For the first time then, PJ residents had a quick means to travel to Kuala Lumpur. Waiting time for a mini-bus to arrive was often less than 10 minutes. The introduction of the IntraKota bus system by DRB-Hicom saw the replacement of Sri Jaya and the mini-buses by the early 1990s. At the same time, some of the PJ-KL bus routes were also serviced by Metrobus. The demise of the mini-buses meant that the waiting time for buses was back to the 30 to 60 minutes regime.


The introduction of the Putra LRT service in the late 1990s saw the addition of the Putraline feeder bus services. The combination of Putraline and Putra LRT brought a relief to many PJ residents especially those who had had to rely on public transportation. In 2005, the Triton buses briefly supplemented the Putraline feeder services.


In 2006 RapidKL took over the operations of IntraKota as well as both Star and Putra LRT. Today, public transportation is provided by RapidKL in the form of buses as well as the KL Light Rail Transit System - Kelana Jaya Line, which extends slightly into Petaling Jaya. Petaling Jaya has three access points to the national highway system North-South Expressway via Kota Damansara, Damansara, and Subang. Internally, highways such as the LDP or Damansara-Puchong Expressway, SPRINT Highway, Pencala Link and the Federal Highway also exist.

Another line will connect Subang Jaya to the Kelana Jaya Line via an extension from the Kelana Jaya station. A train of Light Rail, KCRC, Hong Kong. ...


Education

There are more than 23 colleges and universities in Petaling Jaya including the International Islamic University Malaysia matriculation campus in Section 17, MARA University of Technology (UiTM) campus branch on Jalan Othman in Section 1, Tunku Abdul Rahman University (UTAR) campus branch in Section 13, Tun Abdul Razak University (UNITAR) main campus in SS6 Kelana Jaya, Malaysia University of Science, Technology (MUST) main campus in SS7, Kolej Damansara Utama (KDU) in Damansara Jaya, Kolej Bandar Utama (KBU) in Bandar Utama and IACT at Damansara Utama.

The UiTM facility in Section 1 commenced life as the Dewan Latehan RIDA in November 1956. It was later renamed as the Dewan Latihan MARA. This was a training centre under the auspices of RIDA or the Rural and Industrial Development Authority. Essentially it was also the inspiration of Dato' Onn Ja'afar, the founder and former president of UMNO or the United Malays National Organisation. This UiTM facility can be regarded as Petaling Jaya's oldest college.
