This Moorish style building harks back to the Victorian era. It was next to our hotel, the Majestic an you can admire it as you walk along to the Masjid Negara.

Nice architecture - the building is near the Masjid Negara (National Mosque). Combine with your visit to the mosque.

This building is another remnant of the old British colonial period. Located opposite the old railway station it's easy enough to find. You also can get a nice view from the National Mosque. Didn't try going inside as it's just an office building these days.
