BEAUTIFUL ART WORK ON FOUNTAIN WALL, IPOH RAILWAY STATION.

Few weeks ago, I needed to go to the main post office which is next to the Ipoh Railway Station to post a letter to a friend who is staying in the capital city. On that particular day, I couldn't find a parking space nearby. I have to park at the far end of the railway station, and walked all the way to the post office, passing by the railway station.
My car was parked opposite near the parking space allocated to tourist buses.
I got out of my car, making sure I locked the car and started to walk across the park by passing by this cenotaph.
A monument built as a memorial in honour of the dead.
I have to walk across the park in front of the railway station. I saw a tourist bus stopped in front of the railway station and a group of tourists walked to the fountain area that was in front of the Ipoh tree.
The fountain was not on at that time. I could see the tourist photographing the wall facing the fountain. I was curious and I too went near to see what was the attraction. This was what they were photographing and I too got interested too!
I too took out my mobile phone and started to take these snapshots.
These are art work on the Tin Mining activities.
Female worker called the Dulang washers.
The art work was on the whole piece of wall.
These are beautiful art work and I enjoyed them very much.
Even in the hot morning sun, I continued to take these photos.
Behind the wall is the Ipoh tree. Ipoh city is named after this Ipoh tree.
And in front, there is the grand Ipoh town hall building.
Sometimes I get to pass by this way in the night but I have never stopped to enjoy the fountains and its colourful lights which will be on during special occasions.

Those who believe Him discover that God is a fountain of truth.

For this One - sent by God - speaks God's words,

for God's Spirit is upon Him without measure or limit.

(John 3:33-34, TLB)

  2. It is beautiful artwork. I can't see the trees that clearly but they look nice too especially against the bright, white building in the background.

  7. Not an easy job to do the art work on that whole stretch of wall. So beautifully done. If you had not mentioned that is Ipoh tree, I would have thought it was any other ordinary trees.

    1. Thank you, Irene. The Ipoh tree looks like any ordinary tree but it is the sap that is poisonous. The natives used the sap on their darts for hunting. Have a wonderful day!

    1. Thank you, Mun. I usually don't mind walking but not on a sunny day! These few nights we are unable to get good night sleep because of the fireworks or fire crackers.

  13. Beautiful artwork Nancy. You live in a beautiful place. The one thing I always notice about your photographs is how clean everything is. No litter all over the place. That's what we see here.
