Malaysia is located in Southeast Asia and is geographically divided into two distinct parts. The two distinct parts of Malaysia are separated by the South China Sea, with both western parts of Peninsular Malaysia and Eastern Malaysia having a very similar view of the high coastal plains and often covered by dense forests and mountains. The local climate is tropical and is characterized by annual monsoon winds.
Malaysia, or officially the Federation of Malaysia, is a country in Southeast Asia and its capital is Kuala Lumpur. Government agencies and ministries are located in the new city of Putrajaya (the administrative capital) and the Federation consists of thirteen states in Southeast Asia. Malaysia is divided into two geographical regions of East Malaysia and West Malaysia with the South China Sea separates the two. Peninsular Malaysia or West Malaysia, which shares the northern border with Thailand and has a connection by the Johar-Singapore Causeway to the south with Singapore. Malaysia is a federation of 13 states and three federal territories. These are divided between two regions, with 11 states and two federal territories on Peninsular Malaysia and the other two states and one federal territory in East Malaysia. Each state is divided into districts, which are then divided into mukims. In Sabah and Sarawak, districts are grouped into divisions. Although Malaysia is politically governed by the Malays, the new Malaysian population, despite the Chinese and Indian minorities, is not uniform, and Malaysia is a symbol of racial harmony among Southeast Asian countries.

Malaysia's development and progress in the industrial and service sectors is due to its successful economic plans. Malaysia has abundant natural resources such as agriculture, forestry, and minerals. In terms of agriculture, Malaysia is the first exporter of natural plastic (caoutchouc) and Palm oil along with timber and trunks of trees, cocoa, black pepper, pineapple, and tobacco.
Almost %2 of Malaysia is covered with forests. The rapid expansion of the timber industry, especially after the 1980s, led to a serious erosion of the country's forest resources. However, in line with the government's action to protect the environment and ecological systems, a huge reforestation movement has started. Caoutchouc has been widely replaced with palm oil as Malaysia's major agricultural export commodity. Tin and crude oil are two major mineral resources that are of particular importance to the Malaysian economy. Other important minerals in the country include copper, gold, bauxite, iron ore and coal, along with industrial minerals such as clay, kaolin, silica, lime, barite, phosphates and masonry such as granite, blocks, and pieces of marbles. Small amounts
of gold are also mined in Malaysia.

Kala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur is the official capital of Malaysia and its largest city. It is one of the three federal territories of Malaysia that is directly controlled by the government. Kuala Lumpur and its surrounding areas are located in the heart of Selangor as an independent region.
In the 1850s, several Chinese workers were hired to find new and larger tin mines. During their search, the workers stayed at the intersection of the Gombak and Kalang rivers to dig new mines. This has created the city of Kuala Lumpur (meaning two muddy rivers). With the expansion of the mines, the area has turned into a commercial city and a harbor. In 1870, a Chinese commander was assigned to take control of the city's situation, and in 1880, it became the center of Selangor province. In 1881, after a massive fire, most of the timber was destroyed and then the houses were rebuilt with bricks and tiles.
It has created a special style in the architecture of the region. With the creation of the railroad, the city expanded further, and in 1896, Kuala Lumpur became the capital of the Malay federal states. This large, beautiful, blustery city with high skyscrapers and magnificent attractions as well as its beautiful nature has become one of the most important cities in the industry of tourism and has made Malaysia and its other cities famous.

University of Malaya which is ranked as the first university of Malaysia was founded in 1949 by merging the Medical College of King Edward VII (founded in 1905) and Raffles College of Singapore (founded in 1928). It takes care of the urgent needs of the community for further education in the fields of medicine and science in the Federations of Malaya and Singapore. The rapid growth of the university during the first decade of its establishment has led to the formation of two different branches of the university in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur.
In 1960, the governments of Singapore and Malaysia announced their intention to introduce the Institute as a national university, with the legal preparations for this act in 1961, the University of Malaya was finally recognized on January first, 1962. The university's motto, "Knowledge is the Key to Success," reflects the philosophy of the university in a continuous effort to gain knowledge and nurture successful graduates in the service of a victorious society.

We hope to see the vibrant presence of University of Mazandaran at the Malaya State University in the fields of education, culture, and research. It is worth mentioning that the University of Mazandaran is the second Iranian university after the University of Science and Technology in Tehran to have a close relationship with the University of Malaya. 
The peaceful, intimate, law-abiding and cultured people of Malaysia have been living in peace while respecting all the other tribes and nationalities living there. Kuala Lumpur is a green, kind, modern city with a warm, humid and tropical climate with dense forests of caoutchouc, palm oil, and coconut. 
The greenery around this part of Far East Asia, combined with the humble Malay culture, creates an unbroken bond with the people of Mazandaran.
