BACKGROUND
INFORMATIONS

Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman (Jalan TAR) is a colourful place that is popular for its mix of textiles, fabrics and carpets. Added to these are the sounds of street musicians playing oldies at its sidewalks. 

This was the main shopping district back in the 1950's. There was Peiping Lace, China Company, Selangor Pewter, Noritake, Robinsons, PJ Hendry & Sons, PLAL stores etc. serving an expatriate community craving for imported products. All except PLal stores have vanished when shopping malls took over the market and competition was too tough for the old timers. 



Now, these shops are home to carpet bazaars, textile shops - catering to the cheaper, bargain shoppers. One of the few places that seems to still draw travellers to Jalan TAR is The Coliseum Cafe & Hotel established in 1921 and still growing strong. 

Here, diners have a choice of Western and Local cuisine but many come here for the sizzling steaks and the ambience. The old cinema next door to Coliseum is one of the remaining functioning cinemas left in KL. All the other cinemas have given way to open carparks and bazaars
