Started as an old village for mainly the Chinese community in the early KL days.

Tourist should not visit this area without local guides.

I technically am familiar with the area since I used to reside in Metro Prima, Kepong and Jinjang is quite nearby. Don't exactly like going there for shopping since there's nothing much to do there. The place is also quite crowded and the traffic is hectic.
