Add a Point to the Map

A towering skyscraper that blends Moorish, Byzantine and Arabic motifs with clean and simple modern lines, the Dayabumi Complex is an impressive feat of architectural imagination and one of the most incredible sights to behold in Kuala Lumpur.

For most of the twentieth century, the current site of the building acted as grounds for Malayan Railway workshops and depots due to the proximity of the KL train station. When the Dayabumi Complex was finally completed in 1984, it was the most expensive building in Malaysia.

Today, the building houses government offices, a shopping arcade (Citypoint) and a gigantic post office. You're most likely to spot it from Central Market or on your way to the National Textile Museum or National Mosque.
