Taman Tun Market, Kuala Lumpur

4.2
Taman Tun Dr. Ismail is an affluent major township in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Situated on the border of Kuala Lumpur and Selangor, it is within the vicinity of Bandar Utama Damansara, Damansara Utama, Mutiara Damansara and other suburbs of Petaling Jaya. It is also neighbouring Bukit Kiara and Sri Hartamas as well as within easy access to Bangsar and Damansara Heights. This township is in the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur with Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) as its local authority. It is an upper middle class residential area with some commercial development.
The township was named after Tun Dr. Ismail bin Abdul Rahman, Malaysia's first ambassador to the United States and a Malaysian representative to the United Nations, before becoming Malaysia's Deputy Prime Minister in 1970. The commonly used appellation for Taman Tun Dr. Ismail is "TTDI". "Taman" means "park" in the Malay language while "Tun" is the most senior federal title awarded by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to the most deserving figure who has highly contributed to the nation.
Taman Tun Dr. Ismail was originally a 286-hectare piece of old rubber estate land located on the western fringe of Kuala Lumpur bordering with the state of Selangor. Development plans for Taman Tun Dr. Ismail began in 1973 when two experienced developers teamed up to form UDA-Seapark Sdn Bhd, a joint venture company between the Urban Development Authority (UDA), the Government's arm for urban planning and redevelopment and SEA Housing Corp. Sdn Bhd., a prominent private development company headed by the well known philanthropist, the late Lee Yan Lian. SEA Housing owns the township at that time.
