Jalan Dato' Onn Jaafar
is one of the main roads in downtown Ipoh
. It is a one-way road running from south to north. Jalan Dato' Onn Jaafar starts at the junction with Jalan C.M. Yusuf
and ends at the junction with Jalan Raja Musa Aziz
. As it cuts right across town, it intersects with most of the parallel roads in the Ipoh New Town, including Jalan Masjid, Jalan Sultan Iskandar
, Jalan Yau Tet Shin, Tingkat Pasar, Jalan Theatre, Jalan Mustapa Al-Bakri
, Taman Jubilee, Jalan Foo Choo Choon, Jalan Sultan Idris Shah
, Jalan Foo Yet Kai and Jalan Lim Bo Seng.
Jalan Dato' Onn Jaafar was formerly named Cockman Street, after Herbert James Cockman, who was a major in the Federated Malay States Volunteer Force during the Second World War. His name replaced that of Japanese Admiral Tōgō Heihachirō
, regarded one of Japan's greatest naval heroes of the early 20th century, before the Second World War. However, the Japanese atrocities during the Second World War and the ensuing animosity towards Japan led to the renaming of the road to honour Cockman. The road underwent another name change, to honour Dato' Ann Ja'afar, the founder of the Malay political party UMNO.
