British East Hindia Company constructed The Ipoh Railway Station in 1914 and completed the building in 1917. Designed by the Government Architect, Arthur Benison Hubback (1871-1948), with classical elements harnessed to the British “Raj” Mogul style, surmount by Moorish domes and turrets. This impressive landmark features a combination of Moorish architecture with modern embellishments. Hence, it comes to no surprise of its little nickname of the Taj Mahal of Ipoh.
