Pudu is centrally located in the city centre. But throughout the years, this area seems to be neglected by the goverment. Due to this, Pudu has retained its local identity in spite of being located in the middle of concrete jungle. This vicinity is famous for its iconic buildings such as Stadium Merdeka and Stadium Negara, and cheap food stalls along Jalan Alor among others.
