Kuala Lumpur Railway Station

British colonial architect Arthur Benison Hubback was inspired by Moorish, Mughal and Islamic design when he conceived this magnificent railway station. Easily mistaken for a sultan's palace, its arches, spires, towers and minarets dazzle against a backdrop of skyscrapers. Inside, visitors will find a small railway museum on the evolution of railway technology in Malaysia. It may be worth a visit for railway enthusiasts. The Kuala Lumpur Railway Station is more of a landmark than an attraction, though, and should only require a quick walk by and photo shoot.

Address: Jalan Hishamuddin
