Sultan Abdul Samad Building

Malaysia Malaysia > Kuala Lumpur
Construction for the Sultan Abdul Samad Building on the Merdeka Square with it's 40 meters high clock tower began in 1894 and finished already three years later. Like many other buildings of that period in Kuala Lumpur, it was designed by the British Architect A. C. Norman and his assistant R. A. J. Bidwell in an Indo-Saracenic or Neo-Mughal style. It formerly housed the superior courts of the country: the Federal Court of Malaysia, the Court of Appeals and the High Court of Malaya. Today, it houses the Courts of Law and is a popular gathering point on New Year's Eve and national holidays.
