Central Market is a main attraction
in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
This market is also known
as Pasar Seni or Pasar Budaya.
The building was built in 1888 by the British
who were ruling Malaya at that time
and it was used as wet market
for Kuala Lumpur citizens and tin miners.
As Kuala Lumpur experienced its own development
at a rapid pace in the 1970s,
there were plans to demolish the site.
The intervention of the Malaysian Heritage Society
proved timely as they successfully petitioned
against its deconstruction a
nd the site was declared as a 'Heritage Site'.
