1️⃣ of the hill ~ Bukit Batu Pahat ⛰ is now famous for extreme sport ~ paragliding, aka KKB Paragliging Park currently. Not to miss the beautiful 😍🤩 scenery & view from this hill top ya ğŸž

KKB remains as the main administrative town of Hulu Selangor district. Yes ✅, 1️⃣ of its heritage still operating as the current Hulu Selangor District Land Office 🏢

This administrative complex 🏢 rehoused the District House & the Magistrate Court. The British took a lesson from the floods tragedy by building administrative complex 🏢 on top of hill ⛰ for safety purposes. The construction of the complex 🏢 was completed in 3 Nov 1930 with a cost of $172, 675.70

2️⃣. King George VI Commemorate Clock 🕰 Tower

This clock 🕰 tower is a major landmark of KKB town. It’s located at the top of Bukit Kerajaan ⛰ & opposite the Hulu Selangor District/ Land Office 🏢

It was built in 1937 to commemorate King George VI & Queen Elizabeth crowned King & Queen of England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

3️⃣. Hulu Selangor Traffic🚦Police HQ 🚨👮🏻‍♂️👮🏻‍♀️

It’s located at the top of Bukit Kerajaan ⛰ & was 1️⃣st built in the 1914 as a church ⛪ named The Church of Ascension to serve the Angelic devotees. It has the physical aspects of a typical Victorian building eg. the cupola at the top of roof

It had been adaptive reused when C.C Reade (1880 – 1933) proposal of the new 🆕 township that involving this hilly site ⛰ as an administration centre in year 1926 🏢

Hmm…SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has actually missed 🤦🏻‍♀️ this spot from her trail exploring. A special thanks to her travelmate, IG @livelifelah 🙋🏻‍♀️ she has got the pictures 📸📸 of Spot 3️⃣ to share here

4️⃣. KKB Post Office 🏤

It was built around the 1930s along with the development of KKB. It was designed with the Neo-Classical Architecture style, mainly characterised by round gable windows & round tribe casement windows 

5️⃣. No.1 & 2 Jalan Dato Tabal Shophouses

Shophouse No.1️⃣ (PWD 211) & No. 2️⃣ (PWD 212) are shophouses in the historic building category. These shophouses were dispossessed by security forces during Malayan Emergency. However, there are 2️⃣ versions of the story,

Version 1️⃣ ~ This building is used by Communists to attack the Police 🚨👮🏻‍♀️👮🏻‍♂️Station @ Bukit Kerajaan

Version 2️⃣ ~ This building has been used by the Communists forces for their meetings

In the past, this Dato Tabal street was called as Bowen street. Bowen actually meant for a long serving District Officer of Hulu Selangor in the past as mentioned in a letter written by the District Officer of Hulu Selangor to its residents about the naming of streets in KKB. All being recorded in the book 📖 named “Tarikh Kuala Kubu 1780 – 1931” published by the Kuala Kubu History Society.
