Kuala Lumpur KTM station is a train station located along Jalan Sultan Hishamuddin, part of Damansara Road. It is an interchange station between KTM Komuter lines.
The station is located closely to the similarly designed Railway Administration Building, the National Mosque and Dayabumi Complex.
It is notable for its architecture, adopting a mixture of Eastern and Western designs and presenting a mixture of Western and Mughal similar to Moorish Revival or Indo-Saracenic architecture.
Completed in 1910 and undergone major renovations in 1986 and 1995, the Kuala Lumpur KTM station now contains three platforms serving four railway tracks.
The station consisting of two side platforms – platforms 1 and 4 – on both sides and one island platform – platforms 2 and 3 – in between.
In 1986, the station was more extensively refurbished, with the interior and relevant windows replaced with modern counterparts while the exterior was repaired and preserved.
The following facilities and services are available at this station.
- Touch N Go Lane
- Ticket Counter
- Ticket Vending Machine
Also, additional facilities and buildings were added, including air-conditioned waiting halls, tourism information counters and snack bars.
The design of the extended platform for the 1986 refurbishment of the station took a more modernist approach, consisting simply of large concrete pillars supporting a latticed roof and a ticket office on concrete slabs at the north end.
White walls and arches that serve as decorations to the extension mimic design cues from both the old station and the Dayabumi complex. The new extension is also connected to Dayabumi via an elevated walkway.
The refurbishment saw an additional extension built on the south wing of the building, sporting “Raj” stylings that dominates much of the building.
There was also the addition of a frontal facade for the north wing that sports similar architectural elements, masking hints of Western designs from the front.
These changes resulted in the building sporting two additional chhatris, two on the corner of each wing, alongside the original four.
When KTM Komuter services were launched in 1995, ticket counters and faregates that are common features with other KTM Komuter stations were added to the station.
