My second visit after 10 years and it was good to see that it was managed by a company known as Le Shuttle Event. Prior to that it was just a structure in the wilderness with no written plaques to share its history and now the castle with its interesting back story was on the wall of each room explaining...

It's good to know your history. .. From far, you can see it as it on high ground. There's spacious parking area for you to park your car. You have to walk a bit to reach it. Don't worry, not so far. The remnants of Castle are well preserved as, I think most of it already gone. But if u... More

If you like having your pictures taken, come in long flowy dress, bring along a snap happy friend, and pose to your heart's content. This place is photogenic. There were three couples taking pre nuptial photographs when we were there. Goes very well for those dramatic, romantic type shots. Or just visit to come and see someplace new.

Heard this place was refurbished and keen to do a short stop before Ipoh. Firstly, lack of road signages leading towards the site. On arrival, many shops closed and the place looks deserted. Then the entrance fee is RM5 but sad to say the surrounding garden is poorly kept. Weeds overgrown and grass not trimmed. Then we arrived at the... More

I love princess story, I love castle. The castle is not an ordinary Europe stylish, but a mix of Moorish, Scottish and I can't remember....ermm.. Please comment if you know it. I'm not a fans of historical building, but the castle is really amazing! The secret pathway, the ghost balcony, the wine storage room... Gentle reminder: Please bring along umbrella/hats/sunglasses... More

I've heard of Kelli's Castle for years and really looking forward to the visit. From the carpark, it looked grand. Nice. Then, we entered the ground and the good feeling started to dive. All around were littered with cow's dung. The grass were not mown. So, rather than enjoyed the place, I spent my time looking down trying not to... More

Worth a visit if you're in Ipoh, it's a showcase of how rich and powerful the colonials once were, unfortunately the building was not completed but it's very easy to see how grand it could have been

It wasnt really a planned trip but we were in nearby Ipoh and had nothing planned after lunch so we rook the short drive to Batu Gajah. We were glad we took the drive. We were greeted with a beautiful sight as the building look majestic from afar. The govt built another building nearby to house the cafes, toilets, offices... More

Was on our last list to visit. Almost didn't make it cos we wanted to visit Gua Tempurung, but due to unforeseen circumstances, we proceed to Kellie's Castle. I would have to say, what an unexpected sight. I knew his place existed through websites and blogs alike, but didn't really take into account that it is so different and real.... More
