Colonial building - must see

Colonial building - must see when you're in KL. A mixture of British architectural and local Malay blend can be seen here.

Great historic building, well maintained. Worth visiting for photo ops and survey of the historic area.

This is the administrative building of Malayan Railways. Built during the colonial era with Moorish architecture, it is a heritage building. One of the iconic structures in KL, a stop here can be made for photos.

A beautiful building. However, with cars parked up to the doors and electricity/telephone cables adorning it tastelessly it is impossible to get a fine view or photograph of the exterior! Regrettably that is the story of KL and much in SE Asia...

I appreciate old buildings,especially if they are from another time That is exactly what this place is. Located right opposite the Pasar Seni, the building is easy to spot. I didn't mange to enter the building so I didn't have a chance to take a closer look,which was a shame. The building is still very well maintained and I enjoyed... More

The building will remind you of the old heritage left by the British. Constructed by A.C Norman, if im not mistaken, the railway building combines the architecture of both the Moors together with old British Colonial Style. Its quite a boring place if you are not into architecture.

It is a classic building, still well administered & has a own history. It is not far from Central Market & LRT station nearby. The light at night is impressive.
