RIVER OF LIFE

The River of Life is one of the most iconic parts of Kuala Lumpur. Located near Masjid Jamek Sultan Abdul Samad, the oldest mosque in the city, it is a convergence point of two rivers: the Klang River and the Gombak River. The Klang River, known as Sungai Klang by the locals, streams through the regions of Kuala Lumpur and Selangor and eventually into the straits of Malacca. The Gombak River is another major river in the Klang Valley. What began as an expensive urban river restoration project has paid off, as the River of Life has been listed as one of the top 10 most beautiful waterfronts in the world!


HISTORY
The converging point of the two rivers at Masjid Jamek was once muddy, murky and filthy. The Malaysian Government then initiated the River of Life project to transform the polluted Klang River into a thriving and lively waterfront with commercial value. The whole project was divided into several components: River Cleaning, River Beautification and Commercialisation and Tourism.

This program took seven years to complete, cost approximately RM4.4 billion, and covers a total area of 781 hectares and 63 hectares of water bodies. The efforts have paid off, as the river is now a popular tourist attraction with riverside cafes along its banks, biking paths and dancing fountains along with extravagant night light shows that turn the water a striking blue.

FUN FACTS
One of the main attractions is the “Dancing Symphony Fountain”, featuring a hi-tech water system installed that sprouts to various rhythms of music. The musical pieces are a combination of national songs and pop culture. It is known as the “Blue Pool” or “Kolam Biru” in Malay, thanks to the cobalt blue lighting that transforms the river into a brilliant blue shade. If you’re interested, you can check out the various showtimes for the different pieces of music.
