Amazing place to take some photos. Insight into the history of the railways and how important they were. Easy walk from Pasar Seni station. 1.2RM to enter the station.

Classic Mugul Architecture Station in the Centre of KL. Sadly now replaced by the new Sentral Transport Hub. The Heritage Mamak Restaurant in the Station Buildings is superb! The Ayam Bawang is Tasty & Good!

A great place for lovers of architecture. Wonderful examples of British colonial interpretation of Moorish architecture. Built in the early 1900s and is still a functioning railway station today.

At the time this railway station was built in 1910 stations in Europe often resembled cathedrals to emphasize the importance of the then ultra-modern new transportation system.
