Kuala Lumpur or KL, is Malaysia's capital city and one of Asia's most dynamic cities. This bustling metropolis is a melting pot of races and cultures, and is home to a population of 1.6 million people. Iconic high-rise buildings such as the Petronas Twin Towers stand alongside colonial buildings, creating a delightful contrast of old and new. Upscale shopping malls, themed places of interest and trendy nightspots add character to the city's entertainment options. Getting around this modern city is convenient with the comprehensive transportation system. Well-manicured parks, lakes, museums and heritage quarters make KL a cornucopia of delightful attractions.
Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia
Set in the leafy Lake Gardens, the space itself is a wonderful example of Islamic architecture, with light flooding the rooms and detailed ceiling domes above the galleries. Malaysia's official religion is on display here, although the museum is curated to represent the entire Islamic world, with artefacts from the Middle East as well as China, India, and Southeast Asia.
