Jalan Raja Muda Abdul Aziz 2

Any visitor to Shah Alam will notice the absence of cinema theaters, karaoke lounges, Magnum or TOTO outlets there.  It is said the HH the late Sultan wanted Shah Alam to be an educational town, especially with the presence of the main campus of the MARA Institute of Technology (now UiTM) there.

It is therefore not surprising that there are branch campuses of 3 universities (UUM, UKM and UTM), a school and teachers quarters along this road commemorating the late Sultan as Crown Prince.
One of the Teachers' Institute quarters.
The primary school along the road.
A poem by our National Laurette, the late Datuk Usman Awang, is prominently displayed on one of the walls of the school.
Another block of Teachers' Institute quarters.

The Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) City Campus is located at the Selangor Foundation (Yayasan Selangor) building.
When Kuala Lumpur was still a part of Selangor, the Mentri Besar (State Chief Minister)'s official residence used to be along this road. 
A block of UKM Students' living quarters.
This road is also making way for more exclusive residences.
A Petronas LPG Station.  One of the few stations dealing solely in LPG in the city.
This station which is besides the LPG station deals in petrol and diesel.
The TH Selborn building is located at the corner of Jalan Raja Muda Abdul Aziz and Jalan Tun Razak.
The TH stands for Tabung Haji, the Pilgrims Fund and Management Board which owns the building.
