Sultan Abdul Samad Building, Kuala Lumpur: 57 reviews and 93 photos
In late Victorian Kuala Lumpur, it was decided to move several colonial authorities into a new building. Between 1894 and 1897, these plans were realized by constructing the Sultan Abdul Samad Building, named after the then-reigning Sultan of Selangor. It faces a cricket green which became Merdeka Suqare (independence Square) after the declaration of independece on August 31st 1957. Afterwards, it served as the see of several Malaysian authorities and courts. The courts moved out in the early 21st century, but the ministry of information and the ministry of culture still are located here.
