Jalan Raja Laut, Kuala LumpurJalan Raja Laut, Kuala Lumpur (6 July, 2016)

Jalan Raja Laut is a major road in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. Formerly known as Broadrick Road, it runs roughly north-south starting from Jalan Raja to Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah (formerly Jalan Ipoh).

Jalan Raja Laut was named after Raja Laut (1850-1913), the second son of Sultan Muhammad, the third Sultan of Selangor1. He was called by that name because he was born at sea. During the Klang Wars, he sided with Raja Mahdi against Tengku Kudin. He became Raja Muda (Crown Prince) in 1900 after Raja Sulaiman ascended the throne of Selangor.

Beginning from the north, the major roads intersecting with Jalan Raja Laut includes Jalan Putra, Jalan Chow Kit, Jalan Sultan Ismail and Jalan Dang Wangi. The other roads interesecting it includes Lengkok Raja Laut, Lorong Chow Kit, Lorong Haji Taib 5, Jalan Haji Taib, Lorong Tiong Nam 3, Jalan Sri Amar, Jalan Chagar, Jalan Merpati, Jalan Semarang, Jalan Esfahan and Jalan Bunus.

Jalan Raja Laut was named after one of the sons of Sultan Muhammad Shah (? - 1857), the third ruler of Selangor. After the death of Sultan Muhammad Shah, the throne passed to Raja Abdul Samad (1804-1898) who became Sultan Abdul Samad. Although Raja Abdul Samad is actually younger than Raja Laut, the latter was not eligible to inherit the throne, as he is Sultan Muhammad Shah's son with a concubine.
