“Islamic Architecture”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2014

It was built in the 80's by the Japanese under the look east policy. At that time it was the tallest skyscraper in kuala lumpur. Today there is not much activity in the building except it houses government offices.

This is not classified as a tourist attraction. The main post office is housed in the building and an arcade. on the lower ground floor there are a few eateries. Other than that there is nothing much about the buidlng except for its architecture.

“Strange looking building”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2014

This building is right next to the Central Market and can be seen from miles around. The strange thing about it is that from the outside, it seems to have no glass windows. My wife and I had to go and have a close look just to appease our curiosity. It is a great photo opportunity if you are interested in architecture.

“Nostalgic Building”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 December 2013 via mobile

I was here several times actually from my younger years in the 80's till now. This place is special for those who admire architecture and photography. It is not really a tourist magnet but as mentioned earlier for those who love architure and photography this is not to be missed.By the way if you are stamp collector do not forget to visit Galeri Setem at the adjacent Pos building.

“Good in combining Landscape and Architecture.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2013

There are mostly local activities, but some travelers likely attracted to the arts of the buildings, as well as the soft landscapes such as ornamental plant and shady trees that support the hard landscape (Building, sculpture etc.), On that time the building constructed, most other big-scale landmarks are influenced by Malay, Islamic design.
