Kuala Lumpur : Sultan Abdul Samad Building

Sultan Abdul Samad Building

Prior to the building of the Petronas Twin Towers, the Sultan Abdul Samad building has long been a famous landmark for Malaysia and Kuala Lumpur. It is situated at centre of Jalan Raja.

Unique moorish-style design, this building, which designed by British architect A.C Norman was completed in 1897. Its architect added an Islamic touch that suitably reflects the cultural background of Malaysia to the mostly Renaissance design. The Sultan Abdul Samad Building was also the forerunner in establishing the nation's Moghal design style.

The building once served as the administrative offices for the government during the British administration, but now it is home to the Supreme and High Courts. It also houses the Textile Museum.

This is the most photographed building in the city, with a 40 metre clock tower affectionately dubbed "Big Ben", topped with a golden dome and flanked on both sides by two domed towers.

The clock tower is significant to many major events; from the lowering of the Union Jack at the strock of midnite when Malaysia (then Malaya) gained independance to the numorous new year eve celebrations.

During state occasions, coloured lights twinkle in the arches, making it look like a scene from an Arabian Nights' tale. The section of Jalan Raja is closed in order for the people to enjoy the night scenery of the area.
