Ipoh Railway Station, Ipoh
(2.4/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Admire the architecture of Ipoh Railway Station, known colloquially as the "Taj Mahal of Ipoh" due to its white color, central dome, and stately design. British architect Arthur Benison Hubback designed the building, drawing influences from late-Edwardian architecture and a wide variety of Western colonial styles. In front of the station, take a stroll through the open plaza and observe the cenotaph commemorating the victims of both world wars, as well as those who died during the building of the Thailand-Burma Railway.
