Can be easily seen when you pass by the Signal Hill Road. You can just drop by here and learn some history when you are doing the city tour.

If you are strapped for time, I would not waste it visiting this place. It is historical but not much to see other than a small old tower. There are a lot of better attractions in KK that are more worth a visit.
