Klang ‘Royal Heritage Town’ is the final stop in the Heritage Trail and it is also one of the oldest known towns in Malaysia. The best way to see it is through the Alam Shah Palace. Alam Shah Palace was completed during the reign of Sultan Hisamuddin Alam Shah on the site of Astana Mahkota Puri (1899). The installation and coronation of HRH Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah & HRH Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, the 8th and 9th (current) Sultan of Selangor were done here. Then the visitors can visit the Sultan Suleiman Royal Mosque, a majestic looking mosque designed by the British architect Leofric Kesteven that was constructed in 1932 by the British as a gift to Sultan Ala’eddin Suleiman Shah. And finally in Klang, the visitors will be taken to Kolej Islam Sultan Alam Shah, formerly Istana Jemaah, the Palace where Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah was born in 1945.
It is the best way to conclude the Royal Heritage Trail. This is a quite a memorable Royal Heritage Trail and if anyone wants to learn about the history and heritage of Selangor, they will never go wrong by choosing this trail.
