KUALA LUMPUR, June 12 — Are you one of those people who think Brickfields is just the home of Sentral? Then you are the very person who should join the discovery walk of Brickfields tomorrow.

This KUL city: Discover Brickfields, organised by Badan Warisan Malaysia (BWM) in collaboration with Think City and the Malaysian Branch of the Royal Asiatic Society (MBRAS) will take you through many cultural and historical landmarks in Brickfields such as the Sri Kandaswamy Temple, the Buddhist Maha Vihara, Evangelical Lutheran Church and to the Vivekananda Ashram.

This is a fully self-guided walk. Participants will be given a map to guide them along the selected route.

At each landmark, participants would be able to read interesting and historical facts of the place and also take part in activities at selected landmarks. The walking route is estimated to take two hours to complete.

This is the second walk in the This KUL city programme.

In April this year, about 200 people went on the This KUL city: Discover Bukit Nanas walk where they explored the many historical landmarks along the route starting with Muzium Telekom and walking towards St John’s Church, St. John’s Institution, Convent Bukit Nanas and through Kuala Lumpur’s only surviving virgin forest, the Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve.

Those who are interested to join the Brickfields walk can register at Badan Warisan’s Facebook page (Heritage Malaysia) or click here

For this walk, the starting point is at the Malaysian Association for the Blind at 8.30am.
