Sultan Abdul Samad Building in Kuala Lumpur
The Sultan Abdul Samad Building in located on Merdeka Square in Kuala Lumpur city centre. This colonial era building is one of the most impressive structures in the city, 137 metres long and 41 metres high. The Sultan Abdul Samad Building was constructed between 1894 and 1897. The building was designed by British Architect A. C Norman with revisions to the the original design made by both R. A. J Bidwell and A. B Hubback, who himself went onto design a number of other important buildings in Malaysia such as the Jamek Mosque, Kuala Lumpur Railway Station, Ipoh Railway Station and Ipoh Town Hall.
The Sultan Abdul Samad Building is designed largely in the Indo-Saracenic architectural style which was widely used in public buildings in the Asian part of the British Empire. This rather eccentric architectural style brought together a number of different architectural traditions combining Mughal architecture with features of Moorish palaces to create buildings with a layout and basic structure similar to Gothic buildings in Europe. Indo-Sarancenic architecture is architecture from everywhere but no place in particular and completely alien to the Malay peninsula. The Sultan Abdul Samad Building was initially used as the headquarters of the State Government of Selangor, then housed Malaysia’s superior courts, and now houses the government Ministry of Communications and Multimedia and the Ministry of Tourism and Culture of Malaysia.
