Istana Budaya Kuala Lumpur Malaysia

Istana Budaya Kuala Lumpur Malaysia

The Istana Budaya or The Palace of Culture, founded in September 1999, is Malaysia's main presenter of all types of theater including musical theater, operetta, classical concert and opera from local and international performances.

It is located next to the National Art Gallery in Jalan Tun Razak at the heart of Kuala Lumpur city. The idea of this state-of-the-art theater begins with the proposal in 1964 to establish a culture centre. The construction work begins in 1995 and completed three years later. Upon completion, the former theater, Panggung Negara or National Theater has been relocated to this new building. The Istana Budaya was officiated by the former Prime Minister of Malaysia, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamed in 1999.
