Lonely Planet review

Big-scale drama and dance shows are staged here, as well as music performances by the National Symphony Orchestra and National Choir. Designed by Mohammed Kamar Ya'akub, the building's soaring roof is based on a traditional Malay floral decoration of betel leaves, while its footprint resembles a wau bulan (Malay moon kite). There’s a dress code of no shorts, and men must wear long-sleeved shirts.
