Architecture is an art merged with science and technology, acquainted with history, nature and the future. The architecture of Kuala Lumpur is a blend of old colonial influences, Asian’s tradition, Malay Islamic inspiration and post modern. For Asian’s tradition and Malay Islamic inspiration buildings, there are different style of architecture. Concept : ( Details for Religious Places ) Malaysia is a multi races country. Therefore , we had a lot of different religion and we had different religious place for respective races to workship at in Malaysia. There were Hindu Temple , Mosque , Chinese temple and more. Every religion had their own style of architecture and among all the different religious place had their own style of design or architecture. For example, there were a lot of church in Malaysia. But, every church had their own unique design and arhictecture. From the postcards, They will be introduced the different design of different type of religious place in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. 6

The mosque was built on the first Malay burial ground in the city. Before the national mosque, Masjid Negara, was opened in 1965, Masjid Jamek served as Kuala Lumpur's main mosque. The architect was Arthur Benison Hubback. Holy Rosary Church, Jalan Tun Sambanthan Little is recorded of the history of the church. But of what little is known, we get the glimpse of the missionary spirit at the turn of the century which led to the building of the Holy Rosary Church, and the growth of the church in keeping with the development of Kuala Lumpur. The Holy Rosary Church with its very 8

He was assisted by Father Lambert. Guan Di Temple Once of the most impressive Chinese temples in Kuala Lumpur is the Guan Di Temple (also known as Kuan Ti Temple); a beautiful Taoist temple. Tourists that visit Chinatown can easily walk to Jalan Tun H. S. Lee, a small street parallel to the busy Petaling Street.

  10. 10. Sin Sze Si Ya Temple is the temple built by Yap Ah Loy's workers. The information board at the front entrance says "The Sin Sze Si Ya Temple was founded in 1864 by Kapitan Yap Ah Loy, it is dedicated to patron deities of Sin Sze Ya and Si Sze Ya. The deities has guided Kapitan Yap Ah Loy to defeat the enemies and defend Kuala Lumpur during the civil war (1870-1873). The temple has witnessed the birth and growth of our great city Kuala Lumpur." This Temple also known as “Sze Yah Temple”. San Jiao Tang San Jiao Tang also as known as Sam Kow Tong. Sam Kow Tong Temple is next to Sydney Lake and is located in Malaysia ... Atrium of Kuala Lumpur Sentral Railway Station (KL Sentral). Guan Yin Temple 10
  11. 11. A little temple at the KLCC end of Jalan Ampang that usually goes unnoticed by many people who come to this part of town. This temple is better known as Kun Yam Thong (literally Guan Yin's Hall) in Cantonese, but the name on the signboard says Deng Bi An (登彼岸) which means stepping to the other shore. True enough, stepping into the temple grounds makes you feel like you have been transported away from the hustle and bustle of KLCC and the city roads into a tranquil garden of peace and serenity; unless you happen to go on the first or the fifteen of the lunar month or any of the deities celebrations days - where the atmosphere is more festive.
