Ipoh Railway Station

Last few month. I went down to Ipoh to cover the Malay engagement ceremony. Here and Here. Manage to drop buy to one of the famous Ipoh landmark, Ipoh KTM (Kereta Api Tanah Melayu)

The Ipoh railway station is a Malaysian train station located at the south-western side of and named after the capital city of Ipoh, Perak. It serves as the main railway terminal for the state. It is owned by Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad, and offers KTM Intercity services, as well as handling freight trains.

Designed by Arthur Benison Hubback, it was first constructed and opened in 1935, making it the second concrete station to be constructed in the town. The building also houses the hotel called the Majestic Hotel. Affectionately known as the Taj Mahal of Ipoh by its locals, it closely resembles its Kuala Lumpur sister.
