Malayan Railways Limited Building can be viewed with the main mosque near Pasar Seni. It is a very fine example of British colonial Moghul architecture built around 1905.

If you have the opportunity to visit the iconic KL railway station then on the opposite side of the road is the KTM(Malaysian Railways) administration building. Designed by the same architect it is very imposing.

One of the old colonial buildings. Although updated, it has retained its interest. Worth looking around.

A colonial building that has lasted the ages and is still operational. Has a small museum inside. Worth going for a few pictures.
