Kuala Lumpur Railway Station (Stesen Keretapi Kuala Lumpur)

Constructed in 1910, Kuala Lumpur Railway Station is one of the city's architectural highlights.

Approached from almost any angle, this building is an extraordinary blend of Eastern and Western styles.

For nearly a century, this was the principal railway station in first British Malaya, and then post-independence Malaysia. In 2001, with the opening of KL Sentral, it lost much of its importance, but it still retains come commuter services.

A small, moderately diverting museum exists on the site, but sadly the Heritage Station Hotel is now closed. It is now linked to Pasar Seni LRT station by a covered pedestrian bridge.
