Ipoh Railway Station

This is the Moorish design at it's best. Ipoh Railway Station, Kuala Lumpur Railway Station and Sultan Abdul Samad Building may belong to the same league. A design that display the granduer of British Empire in the Far East. A design that stand through times..

l was here at the Ipoh Railway Station recently, an uneasy feeling creeped into my heart as l witnessed the dilapilated condition of this once a hallmark of Ipoh. Taking as overall opinion towards the historical buildings here in Malaysia, most are just left to be rooted away. If in rare case these buildings are preserve, lot of the artistic values of it are gone, only to be replaced with soul-less, modern type facilities...
