Kuala Lumpur old railway station (KL Railway Station) is a structure with unique architecture built in 1910 to replace an older station on the same site. It mixed Eastern and Western styles, and the British sculptor Arthur Benison Hubbeck worked on it, and it is believed that he borrowed the style from other historical buildings of Kuala Lumpur built a little earlier in the same style: the Jamek Mosque, the Sultan Abdul Samad Building on Independence Square, and the Old Town Hall. In the second half of the 20th century, the station could no longer cope with the load, and instead a new transport hub KL Sentral was built, where the new railway station is now located. And this building now partially houses the railway offices and the KTM Komuter commuter train station.
🕐 Working hours: around the clock.
💵 Entrance fee / tickets price: you can see the outside for free, to get inside, you need to buy a ticket for the KTM Komuter commuter train
