A Fast Developing Town

Kajang is located about 24km from downtown Kuala Lumpur or KLumpur)... Access is thru the KLumpur-Seremban PLUS Highway or by the old KLumpur-Kajang trunk road (Route 1)... Kajang has developed tremendously since the 90s and it is a close sub-urb of KLumpur where residential land has become scarce...

The first settlement in Kajang was established in the early 1700s and by 2006, its population had grown to over half a million... Because of its location 24km south of Kuala Lumpur, Kajang was made the district capital of Hulu Langat... The town's success can be traced back to the opening of coffee estates in the 1890s... One of the famous coffee estates was the Inch Kenneth Estate, managed by the Kindersley brothers who were also among the first to plant rubber in the country on a commercial basis...

And it was R.C.M. Kindersley who was one of the champions for setting up an English school in Kajang in 1916... Three years later, the Kajang English Government School started its classes with 70 students... Now called the Kajang High School, it is one of the oldest schools in the country... One of the road in Kajang town is named Jalan Kindersley in his honor... Today, Kajang and its surrounding area boast a number of higher learning institutions, including Universiti Tenaga Nasional, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) in neighbouring Bangi, the Kuala Lumpur Infrastructure University College on the road to Puchong... There is also the University of Nottingham in nearby Semenyih and Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) in nearby Serdang...
