Berkeley is an old established township in Klang, Selangor, Malaysia.

Background

Before it got its name of Berkeley, it was used to be known as "Taman Bukit Raja" in the early-1970s to the 1980s before having a change in its name. Berkeley Garden's township location is just adjacent to another old township, Taman Eng Ann & the newer township, Bandar Baru Klang (BBK) where most of the business areas & retail outlets including the AEON Bukit Raja Shopping Centre (Bandar Baru Klang) are situated.

Food

Berkeley is famous for its food such as fried porridge,[1] claypot chicken rice,[2] mee hoon kueh[3] and bak kut teh.[4][5]

Transportation

Berkeley is located near the Federal Highway. The township will be served by the planned BRT Federal Line's Berkeley station once the project starts its operation in 2018.[6][7][8][9][10] The BRT project was shelved indefinitely following government's plan to build the Bandar Utama-Klang LRT line.[11]
