An interesting building, with free entry. A bit of a building site when we visited, but still calm and a nice stop on any tour of KL.

Closed in August 2016 for renovation. However the exterior itself is accessible and well worth a look. Situated at the bottom of Petaling Street this is an old Chinese residence with elaborate decoration on the exterior including large friezes containing numerous carved figures from historical...More
