Pudu Prison Wall

The historic Pudu Prison recently made a headline in the local newspaper as its eastern wall was demolished to make way for road widening project in the heart of the bustling Kuala Lumpur city centre.

The main attraction of this prison is the impressive mural of tropical scenes which is typical sight in our country.

The watch towers along the wall are of unique design and different from each other

Graffiti on the wall which warn the public not to do drug as it is a death penalty in our country for drug abuse.

This is my favourite mural along the wall. I believe someone add the hammock and a drunkard on it.

The prison was built by British colonial government in 1891 and was completed in 1895. I believe this place is haunted and full of paranormal activities.

The main entrance arch of the prison is probably the most recognizable structure of this prison. Such a shame they had partially demolished the wall. It could have been more meaningful if it was to convert into a museum as it is part of our country heritage.
