Heritage Row in Kuala Lumpur

Heritage Row in Kuala Lumpur. Cultural heritage is more than the mere knowledge of our traditional dances and songs. It crosses to design, crafts, building,  townscape, fashion, natural resources, dishes, character and the list is endless. 

Cultural heritage is in the food we eat, the clothes we wear, the religions we follow, and the skills we learn. Sometimes we can touch and see what makes up a culture, other times it is intangible.

Heritage Row in Kuala Lumpur

Jalan Sin Chew is one of the last streets of its kind in KL. This quiet row of colonial houses has been mostly left untouched, their 1920’s architecture neither gutted nor designed garish colours. Walking on the street feels like falling into a time warp. Just a few metres away, the Swiss Garden Residences tower with sleek grey towers and just across from there modern MRT station. Another hotel located behind the street. From all sides, modern development is closing in, blink and all this could be gone.It’s one of the very last places of its nature in Kuala Lumpur. Something can be old, but it can be timeless; therefore, it becomes an antique.

Michael and Christina, who have lived on Jalan Sin Chew Kee for the last 20 years. They are also run a homestay business Sarang Homes and own Sarang Cookery restaurant. They decided to start as a “retirement” business about five years ago, but it has become so popular that they run it full-time. Micheal and Christina are the people who still maintain Kuala Lumpur architecture heritage.
