Loke Mansion

Historic Building in Masjid India, Kampung Baru & Northern KL

Rescued from the brink of dereliction by the law firm Cheang & Ariff, this was once the home of self-made tin tycoon Loke Yew. The Japanese high command set up base here in 1942. Access to the interior of the beautifully restored mansion is by appointment only, but you're welcome to pause in the driveway and admire the whitewashed exterior.
