Kuala Lumpur’s public holidays are mostly the same as other states and territories across Malaysia. However KL does celebrate a special holiday called Federal Territory Day along with only two other territories. Federal Territory Day in Kuala Lumpur celebrates the formation of the territory in 1974. Prior to that, Kuala Lumpur and the area now known as Putrajaya were under the state of Selangor.
