Ipoh Town Hall.

Today, I want to share with you a beautiful building and it is our Ipoh Town Hall. Today, this building is still in use. This is the place where important and grand events are being held here, e.g. government events, public events and weddings. 
 This photo was taken at about 12 midday, on the 15.09.2015 (last year), just 15 days after the National Day celebration which was held on the 31.08.2015.
 Last year, May 2015, there was an exhibition at the Urban Transformation Centre by the city council and the following 2 photos were taken from there.
 A black and white photo of Ipoh Town Hall.
The Town Hall and the Old Post Office/building was located back to back. The building was constructed from 1914 to 1916 in the Neo-Classical style and designed by A.B. Hubback. The Malay Nationalist Party, the first political party formed in Malaya, held its inaugural congress here in the late 1945. The Post Office has since shifted to a nearby new building.
 This photo was taken at about 6.30 pm on the 14th Sept. 2015 during a very bad haze situation.
 Front view of the Town Hall, taken same time, same day as the previous photo.
One year later. This photo was taken at about 6.30 pm, on the 20th Sept. 2016. I was at the Railway Station, facing the Town Hall waiting to pick up hubby, returning from his one day trip to Kuala Lumpur city.
And now you have become living building-stones

for God's use in building his house.

What's more, you are his holy priests; so come to him -

you who are acceptable to him because of Jesus Christ -

and offer to God those things that please him.

(1 Peter 2:5, The Living Bible-TLB)

  12. What a beautiful and unique building. Can anyone go in? Do they give tours? The two things on the end, they look like covered porches. I would love to go through room by room. Do they use all the rooms?

    1. Thank you, Ginny. Inside is a big, open hall for holding functions. I didn't notice any room or I didn't get to see the rooms. Those who wish to use the hall has to book and pay the rental for the hall.
