Yeah its a beautiful building but i just expected more from it and the fact you cannot enter sucks because frankly there wasnt much to.soak in from the outside and for a historic building it looked pretty dull. Beautiful but dull at no point i wanted tk just stare at the buildings.

Built at the turn of the last century, this beautiful Moorish design building is an iconic symbol of Kuala Lumpur. It is currently housing the federal courts. It is well preserved to remind us of the colonial era of Malaysia. Located right opposite the Merdeka Square or Independence Square. This is where "Kuala Lumpur" got its name. I think this is the most photographed building in KL. This is where independence day parade and new year celebration take place every year.

The Merdaka Square has fountains & a good place to take photos.
Across the road is the Sultan Abdul Samad building.

Behind the Sultan Abdul Samad Building you’ll find the confluence of the Klang River and Gombak River, as well as Masjid Jamek (Jamek Mosque): a mosque of similar design by the same architect. Sultan Abdul Samad Building is easy to get to the Pasar Seni or Masjid Jamek LRT station plus several buses run routes past the building
