The Temple of the Chan Clan

Every Chinese homes or buildings, traditionally, would have an altar. This is in fact a library or a place to study. the Chan clan has built many such institution wherever they are. Much of the structure and design remains as original as it is. Beautifully done. No where one is able to find such craftsmen [...]

The Most Photographed Landmark In Malaysia

Built before 1900, I admire the kind of bricks used to build the building. It has Indian elements; quite like the old Railway station, but the railway station is fully cemented.

Since then it has been reconstructed and upgraded a number of times over the years and until now the building has finally remained as what it was last constructed in 1966.

A Living Heritage That Tells All About Malaysia

The National Museum or Muzium Negara is Malaysia biggest and grandest museum and is located at Jalan Damasara, Kuala Lumpur. The history of the museum is dated as far back as World War II.

The National History Museum or Muzium Sejarah Nasional was the second national museum in Malaysia after the National Museum. It was located opposite Dataran Merdeka in Kuala Lumpur.
