Kota Raya and surroundings

This is the famous landmark - Kota Raya complex.

In the 1960's this area was only known as Foch Avenue with the Sri Jaya bus terminal on the opposite side of the road.

This building adjoining Kota Raya complex used to be The place to get cheap decorative accessories.

An old building along the street.

Although the Sri Jaya Transport Company doesn't exist anymore, buses still stop here and at certain times of the day the traffic is reduced to a crawl due to the buses taking up all lanes.

This was the site of food stalls serving the nearby Jalan Sultan Railway Station that used to exist before Pudu Raya was built.

The ice-kacang (multi flavoured syrup on shaved ice with peanuts and other condiments) here was excellent.

The stair way leading to the Weslley Church and Methodist Boys School.

This was our short-cut to the Stadium Merdeka and Stadium Negara.

The government dentist has been one of the original tenants here.
