Kuala Lumpur old railway station is one of the most beautiful buildings in KL. It was quite rundown for a while but is now under reconstruction and repainted white. Just walk by and look at it and enjoy the beauty!

It is located at Jalan Sultan Hishamuddin. The building was designed by Arthur Benison Hubback (AB Hubback),He designed most of the distinctive buildings of Mughal architecture in Malaysian including Masjid Jamek. It is more than 100 years old. It was the Central Railway Station. Now it is just a stop for commuter train. The main station is now in Plaza Sentral.

Inside the building is Heritage Hotel. It is an old Hotel but has been refurbished but still maintains it old culture. There is also a Bar.It still has the old oak bar stand. There is an elevator which manually open and closes. It now a thing but a piece of history of malaya. This was the real malaya.

opposite the building the the Administrative office. there is an underpass which you can use to go over but you are not allowed into the building.

Beautiful. Good pic opp, nothing more. Cannot go in, only walk around. Wouldn't make special trip but is very near Little India & Kl City Gallery, can do all at once.

If you are an architecture and history buff, you will love this old building. It is the old KL main train station and it is in between Sentral Station and Chinatown, so it is easily walked from either end.
Worth the visit even just for the amazing photo opportunities.

This is a fantastic example (still intact) of Mughal architecture - the best in Malaysia perhaps. It is the old main railway station for Kuala Lumpur, situtated very near Central Market, Merdeka Square and the National Mosque. It's a beautiful sight, whether you are just driving past, or stop to take it all in. In function, it has been usurped by the modern KL Sentral station now, but the architecture is hard to beat. Fabulous..
