The KTM Building, along with the old KTM Railway Station just across the street from it, are quite arguably the grand dames of KL's iconic buildings. Built in the British Colonial era with a healthy dose of Moorish influences, it continues to remind Malaysians of our rich history and national heritage. One of my favourite buildings in KL.

The Malayan Railways Limited Building is a superb colonial era building located over the road from the old central railway station building. It is excellently maintained and great for a few photos of the historic architecture.

Driven past the railway admin building many times on the way into KL admiring the architecture along with the more noticeable original station building on the opposite side of the road. The admin building has grown a brown facade as opposed to the gleaming white of the station..quite a contrast. This was the first opportunity to view the building from... More

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.

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
