A long stretch of graffiti that promotes peace done on the retaining wall of Klang River, off Pasar Seni LRT Station.

THE Klang River Graffiti is a wall of visual and graphic representation on the banks of the Klang/Gombak river. Running a span of almost 3km on both sides of the river, the graffiti images were painted over the course of nearly 10 years (from 2005) by a motley crew of graffiti artists with a diverse range of styles.

With about 32 images on the left bank (on which construction is now ongoing) and 46 images on the right, starting from the staircase of the Pasar Seni LRT landing, the visual images continue further up to the river banks adjacent to Central Market, with another 16 large visuals on the left and eight on the right side of the river.
