Main Post Office.
The Ipoh Railway Stations bears close resemblance to its Kuala Lumpur counterpart and is affectionately known to
locals at the Taj Mahal of Ipoh. An impressive landmark which combines Moorish and architecture with modern embellishments
designed by AB Hubback (Who also designed KL Railway Station). The station was the second concrete building constructed
in the town.
It is surrounded by a beautiful floral garden which serves as a charming welcome for tourists. In the garden you will
find the Ipoh tree after which the city is named. Built in 1935, the building also houses the Station Hotel called
Majestic Hotel. As the historians have it, Perak actually pioneered train travel in Malaya. The first line's were
laid by the British to satisfy the transportation demands of the tin mining industry.
It's charm and design has recently earned it to be one of the locations for the shooting of the Hollywood remake
of Anna and the King staring Jodie Foster. Click here for a KTMB Intercity map to see where this station is.
