Very beautiful buildings

Very glad and beautiful, well maintained building . Unfortunately the gallery sucks and you cannot go inside and visit. But taking picture outside is still Worthing it.

Stunning architecture. This and the neighboring row of buildings house a couple of free small cultural museums which are worth the few minutes required to visit them. Make sure you visit this area of KL, and if it is raining use the little museums to shelter in for an introduction to various aspect of Malaysian culture.

Really beautiful architecture bearing an interesting amount of Malaysian design is definitely worth a drive-by at least. Great area to be at if you're into taking photos of building.

They had a free exhibit going on when we were there promoting different areas of Malaysia! It was very well done for what I think is probably a temporary exhibit - maybe not? The building itself offers some great photograph opportunities as the architecture is very beautiful topped with a great clock tower!

This is a historical building prominently standing high at the Merdaka square where official events are held for the public. You can walk around from this building to the shopping centers, old railway station, Lake Gardens, National Museum & many other interesting tourist destinations. Built by by the Bristish colonial era.

Sultan Abdul Samad Building is a grand structure in every perspective and a symbol of Malaysia's independence. The annual independence parade happens in this area. A must visit when in KL!
