Landmarks of Selangor is testimony to the rich architectural heritage of the state of Selangor. More than 40 buildings of historic or aesthetic importance have been specially painted by the distinguished artist Chin Kon Yit, with detailed commentaries by architect and conservationist Chen Voon Fee. A historical introduction is provided by John M. Gullick, author of many standard works on Malaysia and its history. The watercolour paintings featured include mosques, state monuments, palaces, schools, churches, temples, offices, banks and even shophouses, in styles reflecting the richly complex history and culture of the state of Selangor over the past three centuries.
There is much to admire in these fine buildings, and the book will be of lasting interest to anyone connected with Selangor, and to those interested in the preservation of its historical treasures.
This book was published to mark the coronation of His Royal Highness Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, Sultan of Selangor, in 2003.
The award-winning architect Chen Voon Fee, well known for his building designs and his conservation projects, was the author and architectural consultant for the Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Malacca Sketchbooks. One of the founding members of Badan Warisan Malaysia (Heritage of Malaysia Trust), he devoted much of his time to promoting public awareness of the historical value of Malaysia’s old buildings and their environment in both urban and rural areas.
