Frozen in Time

These shop lots in Cockman Street (Jalan Dato Onn Jaafar) still maintained as how it looked like many years ago. It is lucky that these shops are still occupied, although is just partially. I always worry about there are many building reconstruction nowadays that would damage the identity of the city. Renovation should be a better way to resurrect the building & grant a new life to it while maintaining the masterpiece that created by our ancestor.


  1. I've been to Ipoh twice or 3 times. I didn't pay much attention. This photo has rich character.

  2. It is sad to say that majority of the Ipoh community do not care about heritage building preservation. We will see more old buildings to be demolished.
