Jalan Alor to stay

It’s decided - Jalan Alor will keep its name. Yes!! That is the decision of Federal Territories Minister, Datuk Seri Zulhasnan Rafique.

The decision was made after listening to feedback from the public and City Hall following the uproar over the name change of the world-renowned street to Jalan Kejora.

The name Jalan Alor has been in existence for 35 years. Alor means groove or lane in Bahasa Malaysia, the local language, while Kejora means Venus.

Earlier yesterday, traders and residents of Jalan Alor embarked on a signature campaign to protest against the change in the road name.
