Jalan Melayu, Kuala LumpurJalan Melayu, Kuala Lumpur (15 June, 2017)

Jalan Melayu is a minor road in downtown Kuala Lumpur. Almost an alleyway, it connects Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman to Jalan Tun Perak. The stretch between Jalan Masjid India and Lorong Tuanku Abdul Rahman also has a pedestrian canopy.

As with nearby Jalan Tun Perak, Jalan Melayu once had a Malay settlement. For that reason, it was originally known as Malay Street. According to the Kuala Lumpur Street Name book1, there was once a Malay school at the junction of Jalan Melayu and Jalan Masjid India built in 1888. It was possibly the first Malay school in Kuala Lumpur.
