The Sultan Abdul Samad Building is located near the Dataran Merdeka (Independence Square) and the Royal Selangor Club in Kuala Lumpur, 1897 to house several important government departments during the British administration. This Moorish-inspired building, topped by a shiny copper dome and a 40m high clock tower, is a major landmark in the city. It serves as the backdrop for important events such as the National Day Parade on August 31 and the ushering in of the New Year. This heritage building is now occupied by the Supreme Court and the Textile Museum.

Today, it houses the Judicial Department (Supreme and High Courts) on one end and Infokraf, a center for Malaysian handicrafts, on the other.
