Building was completed in 1917, damaged during the second world war and again in 1968 when the second floor was gutted by fire, it is a superb building to see.

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.
