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

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.

The view of the old historical building is still look awesome and nice. The train is still stop at this station. The distance from Pasar Seni is about few hundred meters. The closest interesting other places are National Mosque, Daya Bumi, Sultan Abdul Samad, Dataran Merdeka.

What I really love about this place is the building itself, the grandeur and sheer feelings of it. Unfortunately, as far as I know, it is not open to public. It is not exactly easy to go too unless you has your own transport. Mine, I just combine it into my walks for the Perdana Lake Garden areas. And I... More
