History of Kluang

The history of Kluang goes back to 1910, when a decision was made to develop Central Johor for agriculture. The site of Kluang was selected and in 1915, it was made the administrative capital of central Johor. A railway station was built there, and this helped to spur the grown of the town and region.

Kluang is said to have been named after a village called Kampung Kluang, which in turn was named after the fruit bat, keluang. The fruit bat has all but disappeared in the Kluang area.
