Central Market Kuala Lumpur Keeping Malaysian Heritage Relevant in Today's World




For a 128-year-old buliding that started out as a wet market, Central Market Kuala Lumpur is a testament that old buildings can be preserved, restored and transformed into a place thatis relevant to modern time. The building has come since its history dating back to 1888. By the 1930s, its structure was improvised to sport the current Art Deco facade we see today.


Facilities in Central Market have improved and upgraded since being taken over by Kha Seng Group in 2004 to better promote its unique selling point as an outstanding centre for Malaysian art and handicraft, making it as an excellent platform to showcase true culture and heritage values.





Central Market Kuala Lumpur's emphasis on arts is further enhanced with the transformation of Central Market Annexe. Located behind Central Market, it is home to the Central Market Art Lane with unique studios offering special charms from Malaysia's talented artists. 



From classic to contemporary art, caricature and potraits, the Art Lance offers a friendly atmosphere both for browsing and buying. Here, visitors get to appreciate ideas at the eclectic art galleris besides participating in modern art at the Illusion 3D Art Museum. Central Market Annexe also houses the Colonial Restaurant and Bar; great for luncheon and chill-out session.


Alongside Central Market is the newly transformed alley - Kasture Walk. Launced on 9 February 2011, this pedestrianised and covered walkaway boasts an al fresco ambience with a tantalising variety of F&B kiosks providing local snacks and bites as well as souvenirs, accessories and handicrafts.


A visit to Central Market today will definitely give a worthwhile and enriching experience as tourists and visitors get to immerse themselves in rich Malaysian heritage and tradition besides purchasing unique arts and crafts. Whether to celebrate a festival or simple to liven up the surroundings, cultural performances and shows are regularly showcased, playing a big role for visitors to open their eyes to our shared culture.
