this is an old colonial left by the british. it resembles the old morrish architecture. you can find this architecture in ipoh taiping kuala lumpur. inside it is a bit dated. i hope they classify this building as heritage.

Ipoh Town Hall and Old Post Office is another building clearly in the style of British architect A.B. Hubback, but with less Mughalism, who also designed the station and was opened at the same time. Would've been nice to look inside.

The Town Hall and Post Office are joined and were constructed from 1914-1916. It has also been used for political party meetings over the years. Impressive and worth a look.

Chines new year of 2018 gave me enough time to explore Ipoh.
The Ipoh town hall is placed right in front of railway station. The running in front of it literally showcases the most beautiful architectural patterns existed.
These buildings make us realize how terrible is our so called modern marvels are.
I still don't know when our engineers lose their ascetic sense. Once again thanks to the colonizers
