Morning rush hour in KL Sentral.

Kuala Lumpur Sentral (KL Sentral) or Sentral Kuala Lumpur is a transit-oriented development that houses the main railway station of Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia. Opened on 16 April 2001, KL Sentral replaced the old Kuala Lumpur railway station as the city's main intercity railway station. It is the largest railway station in Malaysia.

KL Sentral is designed as an intermodal transport hub. All of Kuala Lumpur's passenger rail lines except the Ampang and Sri Petaling Lines serve KL Sentral, while many intercity trains serving Peninsular Malaysia start there. All the railway components of the scheme have been completed, and Nu Sentral shopping mall is located here. It was also designed to be a new business and financial hub for Kuala Lumpur.

In 1994, with the objective to enhance Kuala Lumpur city's public transportation, the Government of Malaysia awarded a contract to a consortium to transform 72 acres (290,000 m2) at Kuala Lumpur's old railway marshalling yard into a modern transit hub within a self-contained urban development.
