Malaysia – Kuala Lumpur Heritage

The Bangunan Sultan Abdul Samad building was opened in 1897 as the administrative headquarters of the Federated Malay States. Perhaps because the bulk of the population was Muslim the building was designed with an Islamic-styled design.

The Federated Malay States consisted of four protected states in the Malay Peninsula—Selangor, Perak, Negeri Sembilan and Pahang—established by the British government in 1895, which eventually evolved into Malaysia in 1963.



Joget is a traditional Malay dance that originated in Malacca. It was influenced by the Portuguese dance of Branyo which is believed to have been spread to Malacca during the spice trade. The dance is one of the most popular folk dances in Indonesia & Malaysia and normally performed by couples in cultural festivals, weddings and other social functions.
