Inspirock Rating:
2.4/5 based on 340+ 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.

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.
