Posted by anak wilayah on December 8, 2009

Kuala Lumpur Railway Station is one of the historical building in the city of Kuala Lumpur which still attract historians and tourists to this place. The building with Moorish architecture design was completed in the year 1910 as a hub for Malaya’s rail transportation system. It has tall minarets and arches that are still in good condition today.

Located at Jalan Sultan Hishamuddin, the building was refurbished in the year 1986 with additional facilities such as air conditioned waiting halls, stalls and information counters. With the completion of the new transportation hub of KL Sentral, the central hub for the railway system has now been relocated to the newer facility. This railway station is currently used as one of the station of KTM Komuter and as a bus station for NICE Executive Coach and Plusliner Economy Express that services the main cities of Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore.
