Fort Cornwallis, first built in timber on this site by Captain Francis Light in 1786, is one of the most important structures in the region. The building seen today was commenced by Light in 1793 and upgraded in 1804, though with a surrounding moat. The fort represented British protection and stability in a region of uncertainty, enabling the growth of Penang’s uniquely rich and diverse population. Its military status was downgraded in 1897 and it became a base for police and volunteer forces. Japanese troops occupied Fort Cornwallis in WWII, utilising it and the Esplanade for warehouses.
In 2016, The Esplanade Park Sdn Bhd was awarded the contract to operate, manage and maintain Fort Cornwallis by the Penang State Government. The Fort is of immense historical significance to Penang and Malaysia as a whole, dating back to settlement by the British East India Company in 1786. Its importance played a major role in securing the 2008 listing of George Town as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The origins of horse racing in Perak can be traced back to 1886 when the first horse race meeting was held in Taiping, then the state capital and oldest town in the country. In 1964, the Perak Turf Club decided to demolish and rebuild its premises and facilities. The present Grandstand, which was designed by a team of Australian architects and constructed in 1967, was officially opened by His Royal Highness, the Sultan of Perak on 1st February, 1971.
To this day, the Grandstand remains as one of the iconic buildings in the city of Ipoh and is a favourite stop for tourists and photography buffs. Its unique design lies in its twin 180-foot high towers overlooking the race tracks and fronting the Winning Post. Visiting groups from schools, religious organizations and members of the public are also welcome to avail themselves of the facilities at the PRTC Equestrian Club by signing up for riding lessons at a fee, or for their younger children, pony and carriage rides.
The Ipoh railway station was initially meant to be a hospital and used before the 20th century as such before being turned into a station. The original completion year of 1917 was delayed for three years due to lack of construction materials as well as high costs during World War I. Designed by Arthur Benison Hubback, it was first constructed and opened in 1935, making it the second concrete station to be constructed in the town.
The Ipoh station was used as a shooting location for the film Anna and the King, starring Jodie Foster. The building also houses the hotel called the Majestic Hotel.
Sam Poh Tong is a famous cave temple located in Gunung Rapat, about 5km south of Ipoh. It is said to be the biggest cave temple in the country, and is an impressive work of art with various statues of Buddha interspersed among the stalactites and stalagmites.

He remained there for 20 years until his death. Till today, nuns and monks who dedicate their lives to Buddha still occupy the Sam Poh Tong.
The present temple facade dates back to the 1950s and a stiff climb of 246 steps will lead you to an open cave with an excellent view of Ipoh and its surroundings.
