Rawang is a town situated in the Gombak district of Selangor. It was founded in early 19th century as tin mines were opened and explored. The Battle of Rawang which took place in 1871, as a part of the Selangor Civil War, led to the unofficial demarcation of Rawang as the boundary of Tengku Kudin’s dominance in northern Klang Valley, when his troops repelled his opponent Syed Mashor’s troops towards Serendah and Kuala Kubu Bharu. The installation of the first electric generator in Rawang (1894) for tin mining, hallmarks the entry and first ever usage of electricity in Malaysia and subsequently Rawang became the first town to have electric street lights and electricity supplied railway station which enabled a growth spurt for Rawang.
Over the years the economic output of Rawang expanded as rubber estates were established, the first cement factory was opened, oil palm plantations were established and industrial areas were set up. With the increase in job availability, there was an influx of foreign workers and a rapid growth in population that was diversely multi-racial.
