Save Jalan Sultan

Following the well-received response Petaling Street Community Art Project’s “Safeguarding Petaling Street” movement during the Mid-Autumn Festival in 2011, the organizers return in 2013 to raise awareness about the plight of Petaling Street and the neighbouring Jalan Sultan with their “Light a Lantern -Save Jalan Sultan” project.

The parade started its trek at the Buddhist Maha Vihara Temple, Brickfield, Kuala Lumpur and consisted of 25 massive and awe-inspiring floats displaying Buddhist statues and symbols, flanked by colourful decorations and beautiful lights. The devotees of Buddhism followed the floats diligently while chanting hymns, creating an interesting procession that managed to attract the attention of passer-bys, many whom were deeply intrigued by the curious sight as well as the grandeur of the floats. Having started at 7.30 evening, the procession journeyed over three hours before returning to the temple.
