A view of the station as seen from Jalan Raja Muda Abdul Aziz.
Jalan Pahang. This road links to the federal route 2 which goes all the way to the east coast. Route 2 runs from Klang, the Royal Capital of Selangor, all the way to Kuantan, the Capital of Pahang.
The Institute of Medical Research (or IMR) is at the junction of Jalan Pahang and Jalan Raja Muda Abdul Aziz. It is more than 100 years old and is amongst the most prestigious research institutions in the world.
The institute's initial mission was to implement scientific research into the causes, treatment and prevention of tropical scourges prevalent in Malaya at that time.
Over the years, the institutes direction has changed from disease-oriented research to problem solving which includes behavioral and health systems research.
Further along the road is the Hospital Kuala Lumpur, originally set up by the British as a hospital for the poor and later grew to be the KL General Hospital. It now plays the role as the National Referral Hospital where serious cases from all across the country are transferred here treatment.
Stay tuned for my next post, when I start walking along Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman.
