The Gallery (Arch)
This arch is an eye-catching feature in contemporary Malaysian architecture. The design of the'onion' shaped arch is inspired from the arches of the Mogul Muslim Era found at the Kuala Lumpur train station and Sultan Abdul Samad Building in Kuala Lumpur, a legacy of the colonial era.
