If you're in the neighbourhood, take 10 minutes to admire this building and get a few photographs. If you are far away, it's probably not worth the hassle of traffic to get here.

it was my last day in malaysia, then in the morning I walked from central market to sultan abdul samad building, merdeka square, KL gallery, and mesjid negara. The design of this place is very good and unique. It's located in front of merdeka square. When I came here, I just met with one of malaysian police and had a... More

If you're into architecture and heritage buildings this is well worth your time and effort. Take out your camera and shoot away! I'd suggest you go during the magic hour so the lighting is softer - I made the mistake of going around 3pm so the sun was beating hard and my photos were overexposed.

Imposing and impressive architecture. This building exudes style in the face of the monotonous concrete structures surrounding it. The copper coloured domes when lit by the sunlight really come to life, the classic design lines make this one of the stars of KL. Shame there isn't more of this calibre of design and construction in the City.

We spotted this amazing building during our visit to the KL Tower (not to be confused with Petronas Towers) and decided to track down the beautiful copper coloured domes and see what they were attached to. The building itself is stunning to look at and houses an interesting museum well worth a look. The streets around this building are full... More

There is nothing to see here really, a long stretch of building on the side of the street, go see for yourself if you must but we didn't find it anything special. maybe once it has become a museum it will be worth the trip
