Klang (/ˈklæŋ/; Jawi: كلاڠKelang), is the royal city and former capital of the state of Selangor, Malaysia, the name Klang comes from the inspiration of Dato Ee. It is located within the Klang District in Klang Valley. It is located about 32 km to the west of Kuala Lumpur and 6 km east of Port Klang. It was the civil capital of Selangor in an earlier era prior to the emergence of Kuala Lumpur and the current capital, Shah Alam. Port Klang, which is located in the Klang District, is the 13th busiest transshipment port and the16th busiest container port in the world.
Majlis Perbandaran Klang (MP Klang), or Klang Municipal Council, exercises jurisdiction for a majority of the Klang District while the city council of Shah Alam, the state capital, exercises some jurisdiction over other parts of the district (known as Shah Alam selatan).
As of 2010, Klang District has a total population of 842,146, while the population of MP Klang is 744,062.
Klang is divided into Klang North and Klang South, which are separated by the Klang River.
Klang North used to be the main commercial centre of Klang, but since 2008, more residential and commercial areas as well as government offices are being developed in Klang South. Most major government and private health care facilities are also located at Klang South. Hence, this area tends to be busier and becomes the center of social and recreational activities after office hours and during the weekends. This is triggered by the rapid growth of new and modern townships such as Bandar Botanic, Bandar Bukit Tinggi, Taman Bayu Perdana, Glenmarie Cove, Kota Bayuemas etc. all located within Klang South.
At the Klang North side, some of the older and established residential areas include Berkeley Garden, Taman Eng Ann, Taman Klang Utama, Bandar Baru Klang and so forth. Newer townships include Bandar Bukit Raja, Aman Perdana andKlang Sentral.
Malaysia's busiest port, Port Klang is located at Klang South.
