Sunway Pyramid, Subang

Wesak Day shopping at Sunway Pyramid in Subang.
Did you know? There are 300 plus shops in the original Sunway Pyramid, and a further 500 plus in the new wing!

Interesting buildings, that have been very well kept over the past 10 years.

The Waterpark mascot!

Sunway Pyramid with its new Pyramid 2 wing has now expanded all the way to the area alongside the Waterpark! Here's a shot by night as we were leaving...

Sunway Pyramid is a distinctive retail landmark located in the heart of Petaling Jaya. It was opened in July 1997 as Malaysia's first themed shopping and entertainment mall.
One of the mall's most easily recognised design is the Egyptian-inspired Pyramid with a lion "standing guard" at the entrance. The rest of the building is embellished in the monumental style, complete with pseudo-hieroglyphics decorating facades, along with numerous Pharonic statuaries.
Sunway Pyramid is also one of the only shopping malls in Malaysia to have an indoor ice skating rink.
A monorail station connected to the Kuala Lumpur Monorail was originally planned to be built here. Construction began in early 2006. However, the plan was stopped and in 2007, they are thinking of demolishing the monorail extension.
The new wing of Sunway Pyramid, called the Pyramid 2 (or P-2) was opened in 2007. It is opened to newer retailers such as Jusco, Giant, Harvey Norman and so on. There is also a new section in P-2 called Marrakesh, derived from the place in Morocco. Expansion of the parking area to nearly 8 floors makes this place popular with tourists, local and foreign alike. It is also plays host to many exclusive boutiques.
