I received 3 wonderful Malaysian cards in a private swap from imajica :) This one is my first card from Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia. Did you know that the name of this city means "muddy confluence" in Malay language?
More precisely, this card shows the Sultan Abdul Samad Building, which was designed by Anthony Norman and constructed in 1897. It features a 40-metre high clock tower which is flanked by two smaller towers that each contains a winding staircase. I've seen some potos of this buildign taken in the daylight, but I must say that it looks even more beautiful at night :)
The Sultan Abdul Samad Building is located in front of the Dataran Merdeka - literally the Independence Square - and the Royal Selangor Club, by Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The structure takes its name from Sultan Abdul Samad, the reigning sultan of Selangor at the time when construction began.
Topped by a shiny copper dome and a 40m high clock tower, it is a major landmark in the city. It serves as the backdrop for important events such as the National Day Parade on August 31 and the ushering in of the New Year. The Sultan Abdul Samad Building now houses the Commercial Division of the High Court of Malaya.
