Located at the confluence of the Klang and Gombak rivers, Pasar Seni Station marks the founding spot of Kuala Lumpur. This is celebrated through the use of a stylized “Y” in the station interior, symbolizing the confluence. The design of this station is influenced by the city’s rich history and culture.

The merging between LRT, MRT and intercity buses makes traveling within the city center seamless and convenient.

Station Design

The Pasar Seni MRT station was constructed on the site of the former Klang Bus Stand and the adjacent Plaza Wawasan and UO Shopping Centre, which were all demolished in 2012. The exterior of the station is influenced by the quartz crystals found at Bukit Tabur quartz range in Gombak, Selangor.

Reportedly, the theme for the station’s interior is The Confluence Between The Two Rivers of Gombak and Klang, deriving the meaning from the fact that this MRT station is 25m below the meeting point between Sungai Klang and Sungai Gombak.

To allocate for the opening of the MRT station in July 2017, the fare gates have been moved further out, closer to the ticketing machines, effectively placing the link bridge to the underground MRT station within the paid zone, thus achieving paid zone-to-paid zone integration between the Kelana Jaya line and the Sungai Buloh-Kajang MRT line.

A new service counter, catering to both the Kelana Jaya Line and the MRT SBK Line was also built, replacing the older service counter.
