The Sultan Abdul Samad Building (named after the 4th Sultan of Selangor - Sultan Abdul Samad ibni Raja Abdullah (1857-1898)) was built in 1897, and designed by the architect A.C. Norman. Stretching 400 feet along Jalan Raja, the building was originally constructed to house the Secretariat offices of Selangor.
Today, it houses the Textile Museum. Located at the heart of the city, the Sultan Abdul Samad Building is facing the Merdeka Square, just a walking distance from Central Market. This building is beautifully lit up at night.
