Sri Petaling LRT station is a rapid transit station in Sri Petaling, a suburb about 20 km south of Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia. The original name was Komanwel LRT station, where "Komanwel" is the Malay spelling for "Commonwealth". The station was opened in commemoration with the 1998 Commonwealth Games in Kuala Lumpur. Sri Petaling, also known Bandar Baru Seri Petaling is a sub-urban area situated in Kuala Lumpur. It is based in the south of the city and located near Happy Garden, Kuchai Lama and Bukit Jalil. This little town was first launched back in 1977 and got developed in 1981 to what it is today. Before, Sri Petaling was just rubber plantation estates. From the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s, it was widely known as the ‘rubbish area’ as it was the main location of a landfill site. But it was then discontinued and made into a playground and a car park area to get ready for the 1998 Commonwealth Games. Today, Sri Petaling is a vibrant, self-contained suburban township with excellent infrastructure. Thanks to the LRT system and the easily accessible highways, Sri Petaling is slowly gaining its popularity as one of KL most important cities.
