About Kota Kinabalu

Kota Kinabalu Side Walk

KOTA KINABALU, formerly known as Jesselton, is the capital state of Sabah “Land Below The Wind”. Jesselton Town (previously Api-Api) was named after Sir Charles Jessel, one of the Directors of British North Borneo Chartered Company.  It was severely damaged during World War 2, so most parts of the city has been reconstructed leaving only three surviving buildings from the war. When North Borneo together with Sarawak, Singapore & the Federation of Malaya formed the Federation of Malaysia in 1963, the state became known as Sabah and Jesselton remained its capital. Jesselton was renamed Kota Kinabalu on September 30, 1967 and received official city status from the Malaysian government on February 2, 2000.

The city is located on the northwest coast of Borneo facing the South China Sea and has a population of around 300,000.
