Ipoh Railway Station is located 3km southwest from the city of Ipoh and is an architectural marvel. Its Mughal style of architecture and design has allowed it to be crowned as the Taj Mahal of Ipoh. It’s a great place for visitors who want to visit a landmark architectural monument in the city
Constructed by Arthur Benison, the Ipoh Railway Station was opened to the public in 1935 and has been reconstructed in 2008 as part of KTMB’s double tracking and electrification project. The building was initially supposed to serve as a hospital; however, it was converted to a railway station later on. There is a cenotaph in the Ipoh Station Square in front of the building where visitors can pay their respects to martyrs of the war.
