As Raya approaches, bringing with it the spirit of forgiveness and celebration, Klang Valley malls are transforming into breathtaking showcases of Malay heritage and culture, promising an Eid al-Fitri to remember. Despite a calendar brimming with festivities, these hubs of commerce and social gatherings haven’t shied away from displaying the rich local cultures that Malaysia prides itself on. With an array of decorations ranging from gigantic Pelita and Ketupat models to a giant crescent moon suspended above, let’s embark on a journey through the vibrant Raya decorations adorning these malls.

Pavilion Kuala Lumpur sets the standard with its dazzling partnership with Swarovski, turning its centre court into a spectacle of light and sparkle. Imagine stepping into a realm where four octagon-shaped crystal decorations shimmer alongside a majestic crescent moon and stars, setting the stage for a mesmerizing Raya celebration. The centerpiece? A shimmering dress adorned with over 83,000 Swarovski crystals, courtesy of Rizalman Couture, taking center stage at the mall. The Spanish Steps lead you through a tribute to Malay textile heritage, with an exhibition featuring songket tenun to batik, a collaborative effort showcasing the talents of students from prominent local institutions. This exhibition, under the patronage of Sultanah Nur Zahirah, celebrates the depth of Malay textile artistry.
