Constructed in the early 1980s, this remarkable complex occupies the neighbourhood of the National Mosque, as well as the old KL railway station and Federal House. The complex draws attention with its modern Islamic style architecture which is considered to be a combination of Moorish and Byzantine motifs. The eight pointed star patterns grace the exteriors of the tower while Muslim arches adorn it from the top to bottom. Thus it is strongly favoured with Islamic ornamentation and post modern carvings.
The complex consists of a 35 storey tower, the city point shopping centre as well as the KTM Kommuter stations and general post office. It is located right in front of the Sultan Abdul Samad building and one can also find the National Mosque which is in the near vicinity of the complex. Owned by the Urban Development Authority of Malaysia, the complex is a significant tourist attraction with several hotels and accommodations nearby. Looking at this neat, massive structure it is hard to imagine that this was the site of the Malayan Railway workshops in the early 1900s. The completion of its structure took 2 years being completed in 1984. Being home to several commercial facilities, the Dayabumi Complex is frequented by both locals and foreigners alike who are struck by its modern Islamic architecture as well as its imposing stature with its shadow thrown right across the city during sunset.
