Still at the Dataran Area

We're still at the Dataran area viewing some of the buildings surrounding the padang.

Of course, we'll start with the National Flag flying high on what was to have been the tallest flag-pole, but relegated to being just one "among the tallest" in the world.

However big, huge or tall any structure is, it must be firmly rooted to the ground. The flag-pole is no exception.

One of the buildings behind the padang is the KL Children's Library.

During my student days, this was the KL Book Club, a public library which was popular with students in those days. Studies were not the only things on our minds then ;-)

The new KL Library next to the Children's Library.

Next we have the Kuala Lumpur Memorial Library.

Three libraries side by side of each other, and Malaysia is not a 'reading' nation.

This building at the corner of Jalan Raja and Jalan Sultan Hishamuddin is being renovated.

Prior to the renovation works it used to be our National History Museum. Previously it used to house a branch office of the Standard Chartered Bank.

Another view.
Yet another view.
