Kuala Lumpur Today
Kuala Lumpur has jolted from its rural beginnings into a bustling and booming cosmopolitan city in just a matter of decades. This rapid transformation is what makes Kuala Lumpur so attractive. For instance, the speed at which KL has changed is evidence of the innovative and progressive ideas, architecture and individuals currently found in the city. However, the rapidity of this speed is also what has caused KL to hold on to its traditional roots, giving modernity a quaint charm.
 
In order to get an idea of what Kuala Lumpur is

Kuala Lumpur Back Then
Kuala Lumpur was founded in 1857 by a group of miners searching for tin by the Kelang and Gombak rivers. The flowing interconnectedness of these rivers is what inspired the early settlers to call this place Kuala Lumpur, which translates to “muddy confluence".
 
However, the miners, who were ill equipped to fight off tropical diseases such as malaria, began falling ill and soon died. Nevertheless, the tin found by these early arrivals lured more miners to KL that it soon sprawled into a booming, though anarchistic, town.
