Disappearing Heritage

Even in the rapidly developing and modern city centre of Kuala Lumpur you can still find some wonderful backstreets with great examples of colonial Chinese architecture. This old abandoned house in Jalan Panggong (Theatre Street) in Chinatown is a good example of this and it is a shame that in a few years time many of these old houses and shophouses will be pulled down to make way for new high-rise developments.

One thought on “Disappearing Heritage

  1. Wow! Even I haven't seen an old house like that in KL (and I have been around a bit!). You (& I) should also check out the area around Jln Raja Chulan and back of Masjid Jamek. The old one along the back of the forest reserve on JRC definitely looks for the chopping block…more roofing down in last month or so.
