Ipoh Town Hall Building

This Ipoh Town Hall Building with Greek/Roman columns and Neo-Moorish architecture style is located just opposite the Ipoh Railway Station.

It was designed by Arthur Benison Hubback (1871-1948).  The building works which started in 1914 was completed in 1916. The Post and Telegraph Department shifted here from Taiping in 1928. In 1948 it served as  Ipoh District Police Head Quarters. From 1962 until now, it is used as a Public Auditorium.

AB Hubback was the British govenment's architectural assistant to the Director of Public Works who also designed the Railway Stations of Ipoh and Kuala Lumpur. He was a Brigadier General during the First World War.
