Ipoh Railway Station
A great landmark in Ipoh
The Ipoh Railway Station is one of the Ipoh heritage building. This majestic building was designed by the famous government architect, A.B. Hubback and built in 1917.
This building is about 90 years old. It has three platforms, commodious offices, a hotel and a restaurant.
The design is classical architecture, harnessed to the British "Raj" style, surmounted by "Moorish" domes and turrets. If you ever been to the Kuala Lumpur Railway Station, you must be aware of the striking resemblance between these two buildings.
The railway station has just undergone an expansion and renovation, getting ready for the Ipoh-Kuala Lumpur commuter service. Thus, it is presenting a combination of modern and historical design now, which is marvelous!
It's really a good spot for photo taking.
Just in front of the station, there is a beautiful floral park where the "Ipoh tree" laying in the middle of it. On one side of the park, there is a memorial tomb for those who sacrificed in the war too.
This charming garden had proved itself by chosen to be one of the shooting locations for the Hollywood movie - Anna and The King, which is starring by Jodie Foster and Chow Yuen Fatt.
