    This is currently, I believe, the Malaysian Supreme Court. As near as I can tell, the unique thing about this building is that it's old and it looks cool. But there you have it, it does look very cool, which makes it a good site to see.

    Malaysia's previous icon

    Sultan Abdul Samad at noon

    Sultan Abdul Samad was Malaysia's icon before the Petronas twin towers were built. It also has a fascinating Gothic architecture. Thus, a photo stop should be worth it.

    Famous building with lots of history.

    The Supreme Court is housed here, and therefore lots of stories come from this place.

    Do choose a winding morning to visit this place and walk around. You will feel relax here. I won't feel so any other places in Kuala Lumpur, the busy city.
