These indicators reflect the elements and features of the Traditional Malay House (TMH) which has been accepted as the most substantial image and identity character in the context of Kampong Bharu in Kuala Lumpur. Established under the Malay Reserve Enactment 1913 and the Land Enactment 1987, Kampong Bharu represents a significant heritage context in the city, and its cultural identity should be integrated into its new redevelopment strategy and plan. Content analysis of the literature has ascertained 2 general criteria and 55 indicators that are recommended for interpreting image and identity of the Traditional Malay House (TMH).
