    Hard to take it all in - it's huge

Additional Information


Sultan Abdul Samad Building is a landmark of Kuala Lumpur. It is the location of the High Court of Malaysia. Completed in 1897, it once housed the headquarters of the colonial government. The building was designed in a beautiful combination of Indian and Arabic styles. In the middle stands a tall clock tower similar to Big Ben, and is even known as the Big Ben of Malaysia. The clock tower has a golden dome on top. On either side of the clock tower stand two smaller towers topped with the same intricate golden dome.
