Bastions of old KL to be preserved

KUALA LUMPUR: The heritage status of the Malaysia Tourism Centre (MaTiC) and Dewan Tunku Abdul Rahman here where the first Yang di-Pertuan Agong was installed and the first Parliament was held, will be preserved.

Clarifying the issue, Tourism and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz said the ministry was only seeking to revoke the heritage status of parts of MaTiC’s immediate vicinity which included the Lanai field, front yard and adjacent parking space to enable development.
