Perak Taiping :: Town Rest House
Location: Jalan Stesyen
GPS Coordinates: 4 51’16.19″N, 100 44′ 24.19″E
On Jalan Stesyen, the Town Rest House was once the governor’s residence, built in 1870. This majestic looking edifice accentuates pre-war architecture with Victorian arches. Still existing in the original form since 1870 with no restoration or renovation works done on it. Used to be a rest house for British officers and it is still a magnificent landmark and a comfortable abode for weary travellers. The 139 years old building still functions as part of the boarding facilities in Taiping.
The site above has three photos, incidentally. If you would like to see more images of this icon, check out this 2008 post on the Taiping Talk Forum.

Most of the old and heritage buildings are in town centre and within walking distance, so walking on foot would be a good way to take a closer look on these heritage buildings.
