Old General Post Office, Kuala Lumpur
(18 July, 2009)
The Old General Post Office of Kuala Lumpur
(GPS: 3.14765, 101.69418) is a historic building in Kuala Lumpur. It presently belongs to the Ministry of Information, Communication and Culture. The building was designed by architect AC Norman in 1896, constructed in 1904, but due to the contractor facing financial difficulties, the building was only completed in 1907. An arch walkway connects it to the Sultan Abdul Samad building down the road. This walkway was only added later, after the building was completed. The style of both buildings are so similar that many people thought they were one and the same.
The Old Post Office Building has wide arcaded verandahs of pointed horse shoe arches, a style repeated in other heritage buildings in the vicinity. The central leaf design pediment is framed by pinnacles. On both ends of the building are multi-sided towers housing the staircases.
The Kuala Lumpur General Post Office is housed here until 1984, when it moved to the present General Post Office
building at the Dayabumi Complex
. Today the building houses the Court of Appeal.
