This is a historical building rich in character right in the “old” heart of Kuala Lumpur. The building was created in 1897 to house the British administration. The building is Moorish inspired and is topped by a shiny copper dome and a 40 m high clock tower.
The building is the scenery for the National Day Parade every year on August 31st. Today the Supreme Court and the Textile Museum are at home here.

This moorish inspired building is now occupied by the Supreme Court and Textile Museum. It was built in 1897to house several important goverment during the British adminstration. Almost every year, it serves the backdrop for the National Day Parade.
I heard Sultan Abdul Salad building is a law court now. As it is a beautiful building, Victorian-Moorish architecture, made by bricks, I went around it. I came across lots of policemen on the backside of the building. All of them wore the uniform. I asked the way to the MasjidJamek to one of them. He was very kind.
You will noticed this famous area and it's one of their must visit place. The gleaming copper domes and the clock tower of the Sultan Abdul Samad Building are by far the most impressive architectural feature of the Dataran Merdeka. I guess, this is a fantastic blend of Moghul, Moorish, Arab, and British neoclassical architecture, a style far more expressive of the British colonial imagination than of Malay culture.
This is the highcourt of Malaysia. The building has the history of more than 100 years.
A very nice place to visit expecially the night scene here. The road is closed everynight here for tourists. The scene is nice when all the lights lid up at night.
Down in the centre of the old colonial district you will find the oft photographed Sultan Abdul Samad Building.
For a really nice pictures bring your tripod and come down here at night, as the building and surrounding area is all lit up with decorative lights... (I didn't have the time for this photo op, myself...)
My favourite architecture in KL. This is a MUST-SEE ... more than (well, at least comparable to) the Petronas towers. One recommendation of mine is to visit it at night when it looks absolutely stunning decorated in lights (see picture.)
The gleaming copper domes and 130-meter clock tower of the Sultan Abdul Samad Building are by far the most impressive architectural feature of the Dataran Merdeka. This elaborate edifice is a fantastic blend of Moghul, Moorish, Arab, and British neoclassical architecture, a style far more expressive of the British colonial imagination than of Malay culture. Designed by architects Norman and Bidwell, the building took more than two years to build and was completed in 1897. It served initially as the center of British colonial administration in Malaysia. Today, it houses the Judicial Department on one end and Infokraf, a centre for Malaysian handicrafts, on the other.
Which was completed in 1897 served as a Government administrative building. It now houses the Supreme and the High Courts. The clock tower, affectionately dubbed 'Big Ben' is a favorite with photographers.
It is decorated with bright lights every night. The section of Jalan Raja is closed in order for the people to enjoy the night scenery of the area. It is the place where the annual Independence Day celebration is held.
visit the sultan abdul samad building..
when there are special events, the field in front of the building will host colourful parades, shows and festivities in celebration.. if you can, try to make it for the national day parade on 31st august every year..
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.
