A Ramadan bazaar has been set up near Masjid Jamek Kampung Baru by the Tourism and Culture Ministry.
Kuala Lumpur Mayor Datuk Seri Ahmad Phesal Talib launched the bazaar recently.
During the ceremony, 22,000 packets of Bubur Lambuk Agong were given away to the public.
Tourism and Culture Ministry secretary-general Datuk Dr Ong Hong Peng said the ministry contributed 100 pots of bubur for the breaking fast.
Ong said a total of 23,000 bubur packets were distributed in Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman, Bukit Bintang, Matic, Masjid Jamek Kampung Baru and Central Market.
Ahmad Phesal said that both Masjid Jamek Kampung Baru and Bubur Lambuk Agong could be categorised as famous icons especially during Ramadan because the traditional porridge was a signature dish in the Klang Valley.
The Tourism and Culture Ministry through the National Department of Culture and Arts (JKKN) also launched a Ramadan Festival which will run until Aug 4.
Various activities such as sahur visits to orphanages and several religious competitions will be held throughout the period.
