The photogenic Sultan Abdul Samad Building features a design strongly influenced by the Moorish and Mughal building styles. Designed by British architect A.C. Norman and completed in 1897, the structure initially housed several departments of the British colonial administration and later served as a federal court of independent Malaysia. The building overlooks a square where the national flag was hoisted for the first time after the country gained its independence. Today, a 95 m (312 ft) flagpole marks this historic spot.
