Taman Alam Jaya which is located in Cheras is perhaps one of the oldest developments built within the southern part of Kuala Lumpur. If you are planning to reside in Taman Alam Jaya, it would be a good idea due to the amenities nearby such as a surau for the muslims and a 24-hour store (7-11). The Praise Community Church is also within close vicinity.
In terms of education facilities, the Sri Cempaka International School which has a good track record is located a mere 15 minutes away. University College Sedaya International (UCSI), Masterskill College of Nursing Health and Federal Institute of Technology are also wthin the area. This area which is confined along the roads named Jalan Alam Jaya can be easily accessed via the Cheras-Kajang Highway. Other neighboring properties are Taman Cuepacs, Taman Emas, and Taman Permata. It is a high-density living area but residents can be assured that security is quite good here.
Health-care facilities within the area are quite good, as Taman Alam Jaya is within close proximity to Hospital Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia which is a tertiary care center as well as Hospital Pantai Cheras. The Hulu Langat Forest Reserve provides a great balance of natural green tranquility for the area. This is definitely a good place to settle for if you are looking for a middle-range property which is close to good amenities.
Being part of another 3 categories of residential areas which also include four-storey flats, double-storey low-costs, single-storey medium costs, Taman Alam Jaya was initially launched at only RM125,000 back in 1986 which is around 25 years ago. Taman Alam Jaya is built on elevated grounds of Bukit Alam, and hence the name Taman Alam Jaya. Previously, it was surrounded by lush jungle reserves as well as rubber estates which are privately owned.
Now in the year of 2011, Taman Alam Jaya has grown and reached almost double of its previous launch. Now it has progressed into an urban area, and gone are the days where this area used to be peaceful and quiet. There is another new development of Taman Alam Jaya which is located in Section 29 and 30 in Shah Alam, and hence, should not be confused with this property which is located in Cheras.
