    Central market is well worth a quick visit if you are in KL. It now houses a collection of antique, collectors, art and novelty stores. The big surprise however is the excellent food court on the first level which is very busy and has a great selection of different food stands including Malay, Thai and Chinese. The other thing to note is that it has some very good toilets which is very handy if you are in the area. There was a lot of renovation going on during our visit so hopefully that will be completed soon.

    The square itself is not that special, it is more that there are nice building around it as the Royal Selangor Club is on one side and the Sultan Abdul Samad Building is on the other. It's worth a look

    First up - the Tripadvisor owned photo is not of KL Sentral Railway Station - the Tripadvisor photo is of the "old" (but still used) Kuala Lumpur Station which is the next station stop North of Sentral. KL Sentral is a modern complex which provides a hub for some six (or more) railway (and Bus) lines - including the line to and from KLIA - the airport. The Station is very busy until around 9:00 pm when by that time many of the small service shops have closed. The best part of the Sentral Station (apart from rail and bus connections) is that it has some major hotels nearby, and has a large adjoining multi-storey shopping complex next door - we used it mainly for eating purposes. We stayed at the Majestic Hotel opposite the old Kuala Lumpur Station and using their free shuttle service we travelled down to Sentral for a cheaper and more varied selection of foods. There are many restaurants and take-aways scattered throughout the shopping complex. The adjoining shopping complex is air-conditioned and there are clean toilet facilities - most have a small fee but there are some away from the main thoroughfares which are free. Back at the Sentral Station, if you are using the KLIA Ekspres or KLIA Transit train to get to KLIA airport, there is a handy luggage check in facility for a range of airlines which allows you to drop your luggage off at the station and have it loaded on your flight - up to 8 hours before your flight time - you have to buy or have a train ticket to use it. Saves you having to avoid the airport rush and having to drag your luggage around with you. Check with your airline company but I believe the station check in is only available for Malaysia Airlines, Cathay Dragon, and Malindo Air. As a second last point, about 200 metres South East of Sentral is the Brickfields area which is an Asian Indian enclave and includes Indian Markets, restaurants, Temples and street food - well worth a look. Lastly, we had a lot of difficulty trying to find a Liquor Store - all we wanted was a bottle of whiskey to take back to our hotel room (because the drinks available at the hotels were far too expensive) - the Brickfields area was the ONLY place we found to buy bottles of liquor.

    Good prices for garments and textile products. Quite a number of restaurants around too if you are hungry / thirsty. Jalan TAR (as it is affectionately known by locals) can get quite crowded in the run up to local festivals such as Hari Raya (Muslim Eid) and Deepavali (Hindu celebration). Roads around here can get quite jammed, so it is best to use public transport to get here.

    It is a rather big terminal, as expected. There are some shops and there are public bathrooms with average quality (has soap at least).

    Grab taxi's pick you up on the side of the road as there's no dedicated parking spot from what I could tell. Not much else to say abot this place

    Souvenir outlets and food stands are sheltered from rain and shine by the covered walkway with huge kite symbols at the ends. Products inside the market are more interesting and of better quality. A large shoe outlet sells low price holiday footwear, the corner shop has beautiful painted tableware too heavy to take home. Straight over the busy street is a Chinese shop selling semiprecious stones and cut glass beads.

    The area around KLCC park is full of construction sites so the new skyscrapers will soon block Petronas Towers from view. I have been staying at Perdana with balconies and a large swimmingpool twice next to the amazing Luth-building, constructing yet another metroline at the corner of the park has been going on for years. Be extra carefull when walking in front of the Malaysia Tourism headquarters as motobikes drive like crazy on the pavement reserved for bicycles and pedestrians.

    The Former or Old High Court Building is one of the many heritage buildings that you can find in the Merdeka Square area in KL. It is located near the to the City Theatre-Panggung Bandaraya building which is actually the Sultan Abdul Samad building in front of Dataran Merdeka. The Gombak River runs nearby and this Old High Court Building was designed by A.B. Hubback, the British architect who designed most of the heritage buildings in Malaysia with Moorish (Mughul) inspired architecture. It was started its construction in 1912 and completed in 1915. Due to the major fire in 1992, the building had to be rebuilt.
    The High Courts in Malaysia are the third-highest courts in the hierarchy of courts, after the Federal Court and the Court of Appeal. The Court in Malaya has its principal registry in Kuala Lumpur, with other registries to be found in all states in peninsular Malaysia.
    It is painted with white colour and it has bronze dooms at the top. A distinctive feature of the High Court Building are the towers topped with cupolas with decorative buttresses at the bases. The towers were originally dining chambers with private tiffin rooms. it first housed the High Court and Supreme Court.
    Few years ago, there was a plan to convert this building into a gallery but now it seems that the plan has been abandoned. If you wish to come to Sri Lanka, I (top-10 contributor) can help you if you inform me through the message box, found in the pop up got by clicking my profile photo or my name in this review.
    They shifted the high court building to the new one in Jalan Duta. When they moved out, it was occupied by the Sessions and Magistrates Court but it is still referred to as the High Court Building until today. It has since been taken over by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism.

    Not particularly attractive, but if you are walking from Merdeka Square and Masid Jamek toward Central Market, it'a worth a visit. Central Market used to be here long time ago.

    Nice temple, and the priests are very accomodative. They understand the different rituals of Indians and don't blink an eye if you do something different to local customs.
