Don't expect the grand interior hall here. No access to the inside, nothing to see. They should take care of the building though, it is unfortunately in an advanced state of neglect. Waste of time.

Both the Railway Station and the Administration building, across the road, hark back to a by gone era for their architecture, but are still worthy of a wander passed. And for those after more modern architectural tastes, take a look at the National Mosque beyond...More

This is one of the most striking and beautiful buildings in KL. Very photogenic and a real symbol of KL in the past.

Just walk by it if you are in the area. Once you get close you realize its falling apart. Nothing to see inside either. Not sure what others are looking at.

especially when some cleaning work can be done to improve the facade. Certainly worth the trek to see both buildings belonging to the train company built by the British.

Agreed with Colin for metro... 10 minutes walk from there but instead of walking road side, go through the Mosque grounds... Much nicer, quieter and safer !
