    Default Three old houses, Lorong Raja Chulan, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, January 2017


    1. The History
    Can’t find a single bit of info about these abandoned houses on the web anywhere!

    2. The Explore
    Been to KL twice before. There is almost a zero urbex scene there and all pre-trip research turned up a blank in the past. Hence it was very much a case of getting out there and seeing what you could find. The first time I managed to find a few places. The second time I only came across one place. This time, however, I came across some interesting sites. This is the first of a handful of reports from my third visit to Malaysia’s capital city. It’s a pretty modern place but if you look carefully you can find things. I’d seen a picture of this place on the web and knew it was in a green space not too far from the KL Tower. After a bit of searching I find the roofless old colonial house on Lorong Raja Chulan…and found a bonus couple of other abandoned more modern houses and garage to boot. Ironically they were just a short walk from my hotel. Foolishly I’d not put no insect repellent on so the local mosquitoes got something of a feast.

    3. The Pictures:
    This is the oldest and worst (but, arguably, most photogenic) of the three houses. In its time it would have been a quite a stylish place:

    Now completely roofless:

    …and with a range of out-buildings too:

    The arches are very nice:

    Covered in vine they are ridiculously photogenic:

    Up the road there’s a garage:

    On closer inspection…

    …there’s an old car in there:

    Next is the second house which is the best condition of the three and pretty much sealed-up:

    On to the third house which, condition-wise is somewhere in between the other two:

    The road sign looks new and looks out of place:

    Inside it’s pretty grim:

    ..with little of interest:

    Overall, an interesting little explore. Thanks for looking!
