Greater Kuala Lumpur is the geographical term that determines the boundaries of Metropolitan Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. Though similar to the term " Klang Valley", there remains a variation between the two. It is similar to Greater London and Greater Toronto. The metropolitan area covers 5,194.72 square km of land.

History

Before 1974, when Kuala Lumpur was still part of Selangor, there was once a greater Kuala Lumpur district covering what is today the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur, Ampang, Batu Caves, Gombak, Ulu Klang, Petaling Jaya, Puchong and Sungai Buloh. [1] [2]
