Sultan Abdul Samad building - Kuala Lumpur

The GTKY topic doesn't exist anymore but some of its members still keep in touch and meet. Last October Ana and Lyan met in Kuala Lumpur and it was a perfect occasion to send some cards to old friends. Thank you both. 

The Sultan Abdul Samad Building is among Kuala Lumpur’s earliest Moorish-style buildings. It is set to the east of Merdeka Square (Dataran Merdeka) and the Royal Selangor Club, across from Jalan Sultan Hishamuddin. It was built in 1897 and was named after the reigning sultan of Selangor at the time. The distinguished landmark originally served as the secretariat for the colonial British administration. Designed by A. C. Norman, the historically-significant building used to house the superior courts of Malaysia: the Federal Court of Malaysia, the Court of Appeals and the High Court of Malaya, before they moved to Putrajaya. - in:
