Parliament House, Kuala Lumpur

Parliament Building of MalaysiaParliament Building of Malaysia (26 September, 2004)

Parliament House (GPS: 3.14938, 101.67986) is one of the most recognisable buildings in Malaysia, as it appears (used to, anyway) in most of the older Malaysian coins. The Parliament House was the brainchild of Malaysia's first prime minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman. It was completed in September 1962 and officially opened in 1963. Built at a cost of 18 million Malaysian dollars it was at the time of completion one of the tallest and most modern building in Kuala Lumpur. Although the building itself it not open to the public unless granted written approval, one can catch a good view of the Parliament House from the National Monument as well as from Perdana Botanical Gardens

The Parliament House consists of two parts: the main 3-storey building, and its 18-storey tower annexe. Within the main building are the two national assembly halls: the Dewan Rakyat (Parliament) and Dewan Negara (Senate). The designs of the two halls are the same although the Dewan Negara is smaller in size, and decorated with stained glass windows with traditional Islamic motifs.

People who wish to visit the Parliament House can write a letter of application for permission. There is a dress code that one must observe. All letters must be addressed to:
