History History

The National Botanical Garden Shah Alam which was previously known as TPM and which was initially known as Bukit Cerakah Agriculture Park was developed on 24th April 1986 before it was promulgated as the Bukit Cahaya Seri Alam Agriculture Park Malaysia by the late Almarhum Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah Al-Haj ibni Hishamuddin Alam Shah Al-Haj in 1991. The name TBNSA conferred to the park now is in line with the decision made by the Cabinet of Ministers in 2007 to further develop TBNSA as a replacement to TPM.  

The objective for the development of TBNSA is to create a national centre of excellence within the fields of education, scientific research and conservation for the development of botanical, horticulture, agriculture and other various related fields.
