The railway station was initially designed to be a hospital before it was converted into a train station instead. Head there during the day to capture the beauty of the all-white structure, making a gorgeous backdrop for your #OOTD 😉

Currently, it is an active train station that is operated by Keretapi Tanah Melayu (KTM).
