Great food…..even better friends…..

Today Melvinderjit and Pervinder took time out to show us around. As we still had the rental car we drove around, in hindsight it might have been quicker taking a train.

We first drove to

A Gurdwara with a garden!

Then parliament square. Kuala Lumpur is the federal capital and most populous city in Malaysia. The city covers an area of 243 km2 (94 sq mi) and has an estimated population of 1.6 million as of 2012. Greater Kuala Lumpur, also known as the Klang Valley, is an urban agglomeration of 7.2 million. It is among the fastest growing metropolitan regions in the country, in terms of population and economy.
Kuala Lumpur is the seat of the Parliament of Malaysia. The city was once home to the executive and judicial branches of the federal government, but they were moved to Putrajaya in early 1999. Some sections of the judiciary still remains in the capital city of Kuala Lumpur. The official residence of the Malaysian King, the Istana Negara, is also situated in Kuala Lumpur. Rated as an alpha world city, Kuala Lumpur is the cultural, financial and economic centre of Malaysia due to its position as the capital as well as being a key city. Kuala Lumpur was ranked 48th among global cities by Foreign Policy’s 2010 Global Cities Index and was ranked 67th among global cities for economic and social innovation by the 2thinknow Innovation Cities Index in 2010.
Kuala Lumpur is defined within the borders of the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur and is one of three Malaysian Federal Territories. It is an enclave within the state of Selangor, on the central west coast of Peninsular Malaysia. Residents of the city are colloquially known as KLites.
Since the 1990s, the city has played host to many international sporting, political and cultural events including the 1998 Commonwealth Games and the Formula One Grand Prix. In addition, Kuala Lumpur is home to the tallest twin buildings in the world, the Petronas Twin Towers, which have become an iconic symbol of Malaysia’s futuristic developments.

Yes it took three people to figure out a parking meter!

Afterwards, we drove to

Chow Kit,

Stroll east from the Bazaar Baru Market along Jln Raja Alang to peek at the Tatt Khalsa Diwan Gurdwara, the largest Gurdwara in Southeast Asia and spiritual home for KL’s 75,000 Sikhs.

We then decided to drop off the car. In KL, when driving, you just end up in traffic jams. Most of the time it is better to take the monorail or taxi.

The next Gurdwara blew my mind

Gurdwara Sahib Police Training Centre
54100 Jalan Semarak
Kuala Lumpur

In 1940 the Police Depot which was situated in Bluff Road (present Bukit Aman) was moved to gurney road (now know as Jalan Semarak) Kuala Lumpur. This Depot became the main training centre for the Police personnel and recruit. There was an official Sikh Police personnel.

To serve the religious needs of the Sikhs in the Police Depot, the Government built a Gurdwara Sahib within the Depot area in the early 1941

The Gurdwara Sahib which occupies 17,000 square feet of land was officially declared open on 24th April 1041. This is the third Sikh Gurdwara to be built Kuala Lumpur. Sgt Major(R) Giani Dasoundha Singh Village Amargarh, Bhatinda served as a Granthi for about 7 years in this Gurdwara sahib in the 1950’s.

As time passed Gurdwara Sahib Pulapol got its pride of place when the government gazetted it as a heritage building under the Antiquities Act 2004 and it remains active to the present day.

When I was told about a Gurdwara in a police training ground. I imagined a small ‘room size’ and that is all. When I saw this it just made me so proud.

As it was getting late, also Melvinderjit and Pervinder had to go home and pack for a Sikhi camp in Ipoh we decided to take two taxis.

We would like to say it has been fantastic and a privilege to have spent the day with Melvinderjit and Pervinder. These two have shown a true love and very good knowledge of Sikhi. I learnt a lot from them. They are not your average pair who gossip or talk about what rubbish is on the television, like soaps. They can easily converse with people of all ages.

One of the many hotel benefits I have is a diamond member of the Hilton hotels, which allows you free upgrades, late checkouts, free breakfast regardless of room booked and access to the lounge. When we returned from a great day out we went to the lounge to relax and have some snacks and drinks….I enjoy this, especially as they are free! There we met Howard from North Yorkshire. He works in the gas industry and was out here on business. Hope to see you back in England!
