Sentul is a former railway hub famous for its old-world charm, historical temples and prewar shops.  During World War II, Sentul was one of the last towns in Kuala Lumpur that was heavily bombed by the British B-29 planes without any warning on 19 February 1945. The bombing targeted two rail complexes managed by Marai Tetsudo, the Japanese name for the former Federated Malay States Railway (FMSR). The destruction of the central workshop signified the end of the Japanese Occupation in Malaya. 
Most of the early residents in Sentul were Indians working in the train depot and central workshop built by the British, dating back to 1896. 
Sentul is easily accessible via the Kuala Lumpur Middle Ring Road 2 (MRR2), Duta-Ulu Kelang Expressway (DUKE), Sultan Iskandar Highway, Jalan Duta-Segambut Highway, and Sentul Link, as well as through arterial roads such as Jalan Tun Razak, Jalan Ipoh, Jalan Pahang, Jalan Kuching, and Jalan Kepong.
Sentul is serviced by two light rapid transit (LRT) stations, Sentul and Sentul Timur on the Ampang and Sri Petaling Lines; and a commuter rail station, Sentul on KTM Komuter Seremban Line. Sentul is also serviced by a mass rapid transit (MRT) station, Sentul Barat, on the Putrajaya Line since 2023.
