On top of this, there are also Gamelan performances to be held on April 16 and 23 at 2pm.

The inspiration of Cahaya Raya came from the lighting up of oil lamps during Ramadan; a beautiful and meaningful tradition that serves to remind Muslims of the importance of faith, family and community during this special time of the year.

It is also to create a festive atmosphere and bring people together, particularly in the evenings when families and communities gather to break the fast.

The soft glow of the lamps is also seen as a symbol of hope and guidance.

As you step into the heart of the mall, you will notice elements of contemporary Islamic motifs and illuminated structures with concepts of geometry and light. These represent diversity which encompasses the richness of culture and uniqueness among us.

"Raya embodies the values of family, forgiveness, and renewal," says Sunway Carnival Mall general manager Chai Wen Yew.

"As we commemorate this special occasion, let us embrace the spirit of togetherness and treasure the moments we share with our loved ones.

Also, shoppers too can visit the “Agrofiesta Aidilfitri”, a collaboration with Federal Agricultural Marketing Agency (FAMA), located at UG concourse to complete their Raya shopping. “Agrofiesta Aildilfitri” comprised of 22 booths with a variety of assortment cookies, local delicacies, accessories and many more for you to choose from until April 21.

Aligned with Sunway's dedication to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly SDG #12 which focuses on Responsible Consumption and Production; we have created charming mini lamp shades using upcycled cans collected from our F&B tenant.

By transforming waste into art, we celebrate life amidst a colourful display, while also promoting the idea of waste reduction. Through this, we aim to raise public awareness about impacts of litter on the environment.

Let us remember the true essence of Hari Raya as we strengthen our bonds with family and friends, to forgive and seek forgiveness, and to extend kindness and generosity to those in need.
