Medan Pasar is one of Kuala Lumpur's oldest spaces, established centuries ago by settlers who lived along the Klang and Gombak Rivers. The square was vital to Kuala Lumpur's booming trade and commerce of the late 1800s.Plan a Kuala Lumpur trip in moments using our itinerary builder.
A wide range of businesses have set up shop at Medan Pasar over the past two hundred years including banks, medicine halls, brothels, opium dens, grocery stores and hotels. Today, Medan Pasar is still lined with the same three-storey buildings erected in the 1920s by British resident Frank Swettenham but they largely comprise tourism and service industry businesses.
Medan Pasar is also known as Old Market Square, Macao Street and Hokkien Street. An art deco clock tower installed in 1937 is the square's signature attraction; look out for it if you're up and about KL city!

Terdengar dari aneka logat ... more »The open area of the clock tower is likely to be the meeting point of migrant workers in Malaysia. Their group (according to their origin) many roam here. It is heard from various kinds of accent and language in the ears. The building lined with ancient buildings that now occupied various shops that dominated the services/needs of the migrant workers. Seen from the dominating foreign characters. In general this place is not how interesting. Moreover, the reason is not so big.
