  • Do am Dr Mahathir Mohamad was Prime Minister of Malaysia, and thus governed by responsible for the rapid modernization and development of the country in the economic boom years from July 16, 1981 to 31 October 2003. Kuala Lumpur and many other cities (Putrajaya, Langkawi...) have received her today's face in this period. Tun Dr Mahathir bin Mohamad very appreciate many Malays. In Galeria Perdana, located in three very spacious main buildings with floor - walking in covered connection corridors overlooking the garden from one to the next building - there are many hundred artworks of outstanding quality. The most exhibits are gifts from States, was high-ranking personalities or institutions that Tun Dr Mahathir bin Mohamad in the many years of his work as Prime Minister in conjunction. Almost all areas of art are represented here, sculptures, pictures, jewelry work, stone and wood processing... There are also photos of Dr Mahathir bin to see Mohamad and his wife, so that one gets also a little insight into his private life (he is always very happy and positive). I will visit the gallery once again after a few days, because I'm so excited, alone because of the beautiful interior I'm going again.
